Every now and then, while browsing YouTube or reading some of the stuff that people post on Facebook, I come across some comments in which people injudiciously apply the label “Afro-Cuban music” to son music, specially its more modern version: what people call “timba.” I do not know if this is due to the tremendous exposure to Afro-Cuban culture on a global scale, with the growing number of Afro-Cuban dance workshops that are being taught nowadays all around the world. Or if it is because most of the Cuban musicians that people see nowadays do happen to be black.

Whatever the reason, this assertion—that son/timba is (only) Afro-Cuban music, or music of the black Cubans—lacks veracity.

In this piece, I examine the “wrongness” of the aforementioned assertion by going through a series of reasons which should, at the end, make it very clear that son/timba are in fact, more than…

Some months ago, I wrote a quite extensive article explaining the differences between what people refer to as the “2:3 clave” and the “3:2 clave”. And it boils down to this: there is really just one clave pattern, when you listen to it in a loop, the 3-side being the beginning; but most Cuban musicians nowadays choose to begin the musical phrase of the song on the 2-side, so that the 1 count of the dancer happens to be on the 2-side of the clave; therefore, if we were to dance to the clave where our 1 count is on the 3-side—that is, going with the normal clave pattern—we would be going against where the song is actually saying the 1 count is (in this case, the 2-side). If all of this is confusing to you, I strongly recommend that you read that piece first here and then come back…

Cinetopia 2015 ~ FREE Outdoor Anime & Live Jazz!

  • Friday, June 5, 2015

7:00 PM to 11:00 PM

5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI    (map)

42.359379 -83.063805


The 2015 CINETOPIA OPENING NIGHT: Mike Jellick Ensemble & Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. 

Friday, June 5, 2015 | Live Jazz 7:00pm | Film 9:30pm

This 2015 Cinetopia Festival will open on Friday, June 5th with a FREE outdoor screening on the DIA North Lawn of the stunning new animated film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.

The Prophet is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written, having been published in over forty languages since its publication in 1923. 

The book’s timeless verses have been given new form in this anthology film.

Actor-producer Salma Hayek-Pinault spearheaded this ambitious project, which also includes the voices of Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Alfred Molina, and Frank Langella.

As their story unfolds, several of Gibran’s most cherished essays — on love, work, children, marriage, and freedom — are brought to life in vignettes directed by some of the world’s foremost animators, among them Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells) and Bill Plympton (Idiots and Angels).

With a score by Gabriel Yared that includes contributions from Glen Hansard, and Yo-Yo Ma, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet it is also a musical collaboration, a richly spiritual experience worthy of Gibran’s lyrical book. 


This festive kickoff evening will begin at dusk (7pm) on the DIA North lawn with a live jazz interpretation of     –  Holst’s The Planets by the Mike Jellick Ensemble,

followed by the film screening at sundown (9:30pm). 

The Planets, Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916.

Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

A complimentary bike valet will be hosted by the Hellenic Museum, and Azul taco bar will be serving inside the DIA’s Kirby St. entrance.

This event is presented through a partnership of the Detroit Institute of Arts and Midtown Detroit Inc.
