Led by Cuban singer-percussionist Jesús Díaz, Caribbean Express presents a dynamic mix of Caribbean and Latin American music rooted in the rhythms of Africa and indigenous cultures of the Americas. Demonstrating the role that music plays in cultural identity, history and geography, Caribbean Express encompasses a wide variety of styles from Cuba, Trinidad, Mexico and Jamaica, including calypso, bomba, salsa, son, rumba, reggae y mas! Get ready to sing, dance and clap along with the clave, congas, steel pan and be inspired by the rhythms of the Caribbean. As they say in Latin America, “¡Vamos a bailar!”
