Riverside Theatres and SIMA Presents
Cool for School
Featuring Cuban Jazz and Dance project

This is an opportunity for your students to experience the colourful and dynamic music and dance of Cuba. Our engaging and interactive Cool for School concerts and workshop series aims to motivate and inspire students during their studies and practice.

Caribé welcomes you to participate in a deep dive into Cuban Jazz in Australia. Riverside will become rhythm central with Caribé’s blend of powerful Latin American and Caribbean percussion, stunning improvisation and jazz harmony. Their music accompanies social and spiritual aspects of Cuban culture and celebrates the diversity of original Australian Latin Jazz. Gai Bryant’s compositions allows percussionists Steve Marin and Juan Carlos Allende to shine alongside pianist Daniel Pliner and bassist Cesar Marin. Together they push trumpeter Lee McIver, saxophonists Gai Bryant and Julian Gough, trombonist Nick Barnard and dancer Adrian Medina to express the raw energy and passion of Latin Jazz.

Cool for School concerts include a 1 hour performance, followed by a Q & A and an interactive workshop to break down the elements of improvised, jazz and world music.
