Latin Jazz Group Salsamba Concludes Uptown Jazz Series
The Mary Pappert School of Music's Uptown Jazz Series at Duquesne University concludes on Monday, April 3, with a performance by Salsamba.
Salsamba, a Latin jazz quintet, will perform at 7:30 p.m. at the Genesius Theater on campus. The group is known for fusing Latin-American rhythms with the harmonic and melodic sophistication of contemporary American jazz.
