Latin music, a general term for music that combines African and Latin American rhythms with classical and Jazz harmonies, is often used as a catch-all for everything from Bossa Nova (think “The Girl From Ipanema”) to upbeat lounge music (such as the intro to Sex and the City). Jose Rosa, who has played with such greats as Arturo Sandoval and Tito Puente, is a master percussionist from Humacao, Puerto Rico and a star of "Latin" music.
Rosa will join an all-star group of “Latin” players for his big show at The Blue Wisp, including Jaime and Sonia Morales, a brother-and-sister team who play in local Salsa band Son Del Caribe, and the10-piece “Latin” Jazz band, Poco Loco. The following night, the show continues at The Southgate House, as part of the second annual World Music Fest.
