Saturday September 24

The Caribbean Combo in an established ensemble of the Scol di Musica Rufo Wever under the Leadership of Carlos Bislip. The concept of this ensemble is to familiarize the young student with Rhythms of our region “The Caribbean and South America” and using songs of the “Great American Song Book” as vehicles to achieve its goal. The Caribbean Combo is in existence for five years now, where many young musicians participants were schooled and trained in the Performance Practices of both Jazz and Caribbean. Many of these young musicians have now gone on to form part of many musical groups in various genres such as Tropical Music and have performed in various editions Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival. The ages of the participants of this edition of the Caribbean Combo ranges from 13 to 20 years of age.
