BHM: John Santos with live painting by Adrian Arias

Celebrating Black History Month

Saturday, February 24, 2024,  evening concert by our 2023 Artist in Residence and percussion master John Santos with his quartet at the Raven Theater, accompanied by a live painting by popular Bay Area painter Adrian Arias.An audiovisual excursion into the mystery that connects all human beings - Love. Throughout colonial history, and under the most difficult conditions, love has fueled Black artistic expression, giving birth to foundational rhythms, choreography, song, and visual art.  This concert, featuring the renowned John Santos Quartet in collaboration with one of the most prolific artists of our times, painter/poet extraordinaire Adrián Arías, pays homage to the legacy of love as resistance in the Americas. Afro-Cuban, Afro-Peruvian, and Afro-Puerto Rican elements will be the vehicle.
