Information for Fall 2020
IU’s Latin American Ensemble (MUS-X414) is a performing chamber group playing popular and folkloric music from the Caribbean, as well as Central and South America. The course typically focuses on Afro-Cuban music styles such as rumba, changüí, son, danzón, chachachá, charanga, and salsa. However the repertoire often ventures further out to include music from many other Latin American countries.
No previous experience in Latin American music is necessary to join. X414 is open to all instrumentalists both undergraduate and graduate students, music majors and non-majors. This course can be used as chamber ensemble credit with approval.
