Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie! Changüí Majadero // San Francisco

Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie! Changüí Majadero // San Francisco

Playing Cuban roots music straight outta of East LA, Changüí Majadero is a blazing five-piece band that has honed a deeply informed and highly personal take on changüí, a surging Afro-Cuban musical tradition that took shape in the late 19th century on the eastern side of the island around Guantanamo.

It’s one of the foundational styles that gave birth to son, salsa and timba, and in the hands of Changüí Majadero the music feels as fresh and intoxicating as a stiff shot of rum. Founded by vocalist Gabriel García, an expert on Cuban tres guitar, the band features bassist Ross Schodek, Norrell Thompson on vocals and guayo (metal scraper), George Ortiz on the low pitched bongó de monte, and Alfred Ortiz on maracas and vocals.

Let’s Go Salsa@Jessie!, the open-air salsa dance party in Jessie Square (near the Contemporary Jewish Museum).

It takes place on the third Thursday from May to August from 6:00pm – 7:30pm with salsa dance lessons at the beginning of every program.
