Join us for a very special concert collaboration featuring master percussionist John Santos. A seven-time Grammy nominee, he is widely regarded as one of the foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music in the world today. The evening features repertoire specifically prepared by Mr. Santos designed to showcase the deep syncretization of Latin American and North American musical idioms. The program largely consists of rarely-performed original music designed to both perk up your ears and tempt you to get up of your seat! Mr. Santos' mastery of all Afro-Latin percussion instruments will be on full display in this rare performance.

Mr. Santos is known for his innovative use of traditional forms and instruments in combination with contemporary music, and has earned international recognition as a performer, composer, writer and educator. The ensemble is excited to present this Bay Area treasure to the Stanford community.
