Michael Skinkus and Moyuba at the Delgado Music Festival

View Full Event Description

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane presents Michael Skinkus with Moyuba at the first annual Delgado Music Festival on Saturday, April 1 at 5:30 pm. The performance is part of a two day inaugural festival that is the culminating event of a week of educational music activities and will include master classes and a songwriting contest. Moyuba is a group that performs “Modern Jazz compositions based upon the Yoruba sacred songs and Bata drum rhythms that form the ceremonial music of Santería or Regla de Ocha in Cuba. The band uses the sacred songs and rhythms as a basis for it’s original compositions that are in fact suites of songs dedicated to orishas such as Eleguá, Ogún, and Ochósi.” (from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival website where they will perform on Friday, April 28). The performance is supported with funds from the Stone Center for Latin American Studies’ US Department of Education’s Title VI National Resource Center grant.
