AFROCUBAN DANCE CLASSES OTTAWA - WITH SHAKIRU ATORO AND LIVE PERCUSSION
Iré de los Orishas (blessings of the Orishas) is a monthly afro-cuban workshop series offered in Ottawa with live music.
Each workshop will consist of 1.5 hours of instruction and practice taught by Shakiru Atoro to the accompaniment of live percussion music provided by professional Cuban musicians, (Reynier Garcia Reyes, Frank Martinez, and Arien Villegas.
