BRAC is pleased to present a virtual performing arts festival to celebrate the great contributions to American music and dance by African and Latina Americans. Through such genres as Mississippi Delta ragtime and Jazz, Tennessee Blues and R&B, Philadelphia Soul, New York Jazz, Salsa and Boogaloo and the birth of Hip Hop in the Bronx, musicians of the African and Latina diaspora have been at the forefront of music innovation since the drumming circles of Congo Square in New Orleans and the mid-20th Century migration of Latinas from the Caribbean.

This festival, “Congo Square (New Orleans) to West Farms Square (The Bronx): Jazz and Blues to Boogaloo and Hip Hop”, will offer virtual performances, arts education and community engagement over three weeks in June.

Bronx River Art Center continues its virtual performing arts festival to celebrate the great contributions to American music and dance by African and Latin Americans.

The festival continues this Friday, June 19th with a performance and workshop featuring Modern Jazz musician Enrique Haneine.

BRAC is thrilled to present Enrique Haneine, a Grammy nominated jazz musician, drummer, pianist, improviser, teacher, producer, and composer born in Mexico City currently based in Port Morris, Bronx.  

Mr. Haneine will perform virtually with his quartet, including percussion (Udu drum and tambourine), upright bass, trumpet and bass clarinet. The quartet will play original compositions from his recording, Unlayered, released April 3, 2020. Modern Jazz Today enthuses Mr. Haneine is “exploring the unveiling and removal of textures and layers that allows us to connect deeper and clearer to our most simple version” they continue “Haneine’s incredible energy, dedication and love for life can be felt by the way he expresses the influence of the different cultures and his vast education, deepened by his life experiences.”

Listen to tracks from Unlayered

Mr. Haneine will also present a unique workshop for the BRAC community exploring the concepts involved in composing and producing his music. The workshop will examine how the rhythms were created as well as the creation of new sounds with innovative scales and harmonies. This inquiry is for the purpose of using these elements to compose and create a setting where musicians can interact and converse through improvisation. Mr. Haneine will engage and inform those who have ever been curious how musicians create and improvise.
