Live Arts Boston
Last November 2017, Cornell Coley and Kenny Kozol convened outstanding international artists and produced "The Soul of Latin Jazz" a powerful concert with dance, poetry and visual art. Here's a 5-minute clip from 2017:
For 2018, we've expanded the project, added Sandra "Sasi" Marcelino to the team and launched the KECOSA COLLECTIVE.
We presented a May 2018 music and dance workshop featured Joh Camara, Missia and Fomoro Dioubate, all from a heralded griot lineage.
Saturday, Nov 3, Sasi collaborated with Hyde Square Task Force to host Cuban master dance artist Liethis Hechavarria.
