CalypSamba featuring percussionist Scott Kettner Bookmark and Share

Nov 7

7:30 p.m. @ Wheelwright Auditorium

CalypSamba, the CCU world percussion ensemble, will present an evening of cross-cultural fusion music featuring percussionist Scott Kettner and directed by Jesse Willis, associate professor in the Department of Music. Kettner and the ensemble will blend a variety of musical styles that draw on influences from New Orleans, the Caribbean and Brazil. 

A master percussionist, bandleader and educator, Kettner is the guiding force behind Nation Beat, a band wth teeming, vibrant rhythms that find common ground in the primal maracatu rhythm of Brazil's northeastern region; the Big Easy's funky, hypnotic second-line and strolling Mardi Gras Indians; and the unfettered freedom of big-city downtown jazz.
