Rumba Na' Ma

Mosaic's Cuban Night, with live drum ensemble Tambor Vivo, was moved to TONIGHT, Thursday (9/24), instead of as originally scheduled last week. Two short sets at 10:30 and 11:30; No cover.

Here's what I wrote about it in July:
"Cuban Night at Mosaic

Primal energies ran high in what may have been the most extraordinary night in the monthly Cuban jam series since they started last year.

Mosaic's Moroccan wine cellar ambience took on a kind of beatnik vibe, where novices and nightclub habitues mingled with rumba aficionados and Cuban homeboys. I saw one New Yorker, a former Palladium dancer, summoning rumba steps from the same deep, mysterious roots that fed the original mambo craze.

More, please."
