Los Olvidados/ The Forgotten Ones. Audio documentary- the Latin experience in Jazz

Created and hosted by Michael Abrosino

Los Olvidados (The Forgotten Ones) is a one hour audio documentary exploring some of the unique historical, cultural, and artistic contributions that encompass the Latin experience in Jazz. The program explores the viewpoints and music of a special group of award winning artists, scholars and activists. Jane Bunnett, Dr. Martha Gonzalez, Dr. Benjamin Lapidus, Yilian Cañizares, Arturo O'Farrill, Michele Rosewoman, Bobby Sanabria, John Santos, Dr. Chris Washburne and Miguel Zenón will speak to the inspiration they maintain as contributors, educators, and creative thinkers within Pan-Latin Jazz

"Whether originating from Panama, Mexican, Argentina, Columbia, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Trinidad or storied urban centers in the United States, this magnificent groove, and the rhythmic tension it's built on, embody the quintessential nature of Jazz. Featuring influential contemporary musicians, critics and curators of Pan- Latin music, Los Olvidados will explore how this storied musical tradition continues to combat a legacy of indifference, while remaining at the forefront of musicality transforming the quintessential nature of Jazz.
Made possible by a grant from the Mass Cultural Council."

OG Burn, A Tribute To, Un Homenaje a Eddie Bobè

Michele Rosewoman
Guest Curator - Piano/Vocals

Special Guests:
Román Díaz (Percussion/Vocals), Felix Sanabria (Percussion), Gene Golden (Percussion),
Abraham Rodriguez (Percussion/Vocals), Hector “Papote” Jimenez (Vocals),
Jay Rodriguez (saxophone)

At the invitation of Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Michele Roseewopman curated a night of music at HOSTOS Center for the Arts and Culture in tribute to the late master percussionist Eddie Bobè.

"My (and Eddie's) long-time associates---percussion legends Román Díaz, Felix Sanabria, Gene Golden, vocalists Abraham Rodriguez and Hector “Papote” Jimenez and flautist/saxophonist Jay Rodriguez-- joined me, Arturo and the ALJO in the performance of a repertoire that spotlighted compositions by myself, Arturo and Chico O’Farrill, as well as a celebration of rumba--a uniquely Cuban musical form.
Eddie Bobè was an inspired creative force and master of folkloric percussion and vocal traditions of the African Diaspora. He was a foundational figure in the New York world of percussionists and his old school knowledge and respect combined with his experimental and unique ideas were crucial to both the retention and expansion of these musical and cultural expressions.”
