Event Description

Mexico City’s Los Rastrillos have been on the scene for over 20 years playing irresistible reggae mixed with ska, jazz, and other styles. But what is it that helps make their music have an authentic sound and feel? Clearly there are many different strains of reggae throughout the world and thousands of bands bring their own influences that meld into reggae music that came out of Jamaica. Come to this workshop and learn about the Prehispanic (pre-Spanish conquest) and the Mestizo instruments (after the Spanish conquest) that were intertwined into much of the reggae music you hear in Mexico. Join Los Rastrillos’ Arturo Galvan, Gerardo Pimentel, Enrique Noguez and Ruben Perez and learn specifically how these instruments and stylistic evolutions help make Los Rastrillos’ sound blend into the band we all love and enjoy today.

Workshop is free however, advance sign up is required at Long & McQuade. Please contact 250-384-3622 for sign up information.
