Brown Jazz Band in Cuba

Fourteen undergraduate musicians are in Havana for a week of performances, jam sessions with local musicians, and educational lectures sponsored by Brown's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) and music department.  They are accompanied by Richard Snyder, director of CLACS, and Matthew McGarrell, Jazz Band director. Glenn Loury, the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences and Watson faculty fellow, is also with the group, providing academic enrichment about the transformation of the Cuban economy.
