New York, 2022 – Bogotá-born accordionist, bandleader, and singer Gregorio Uribe is one of the foremost leaders of contemporary cumbia, a percussion-heavy and indigenously Colombian style of music and dance that has been creatively assimilated by countries throughout Central and South America. Audiences are invited to join in for an all-ages, hands-on creative listening and beginning composition class, led by Lincoln Center teaching artists and open to visitors of all ability levels who are ready and curious to explore their own musical skills. Following the family-friendly educational workshop at The Oasis, Uribe will display the talent that has made him a go-to collaborator among such Latin music superstars as Carlos Vives and Rubén Blades with a concert set of jazz originals and traditional folk songs on Hearst Plaza.
