African, Cuban cultures blend through music at Lake Zurich library
The African influence on the culture and music of Cuba was on display Sunday when the Contemporary Music Project Percussion Ensemble performed at the Ela Area Public Library in Lake Zurich.
The ensemble featuring Donald Skoog, Jose Vega, Tim Amrein, Roberto Seif, Anne Pansard and Ed Brann entertained and educated almost 50 patrons of all ages with the performance.
The group's interactive program showcased the history and music of the Carabali, the Congos, the Lucimi and the Arara. The Lucimi and Arara are ethnic groups in Cuba.
