From the Brecht Forum's website:
Gene Golden has played a key role in the evolution of New York's Latin music scene for the past four decades. He was one of the first African Americans to study and master Afrocuban religious and popular drumming styles, pushing cultural and musical boundaries. Gene virtually embodies the idea of Afro/Latin fusion. He is devoted to passing these traditions on, and is recognized as a generous, caring and inspiring teacher. Please join us to celebrate one of our elders!
Sunday January 27th (Gene's birthday is actually the 26th, but you know, rumbas always start late...) 5pm-9pm at the Brecht Forum 451 West Street (aka West Side Highway) between Bank and Bethune streets. Also check out the Brecht's site for dates of more rumbas in this series.
UPDATE: The party was a success, everyone had a great time, here is a clip of Gene and Felix Sanabria trading quinto licks:
