Cuban Roots Harmony Choir

Coro de Clave is based in London and Spain. We provide ongoing classes, rehearsals and performances both in-person and online. We are passionate about the promotion of Afro-Cuban folkloric culture. The choir provides an opportunity for participants of any level to develop their musicality, learn about the historical context of this tradition and meet a community of lovely people who enjoy singing these gorgeous songs.

The name Coro de Clave was given to choirs that proliferated in the black communities of Western Cuba from the last part of the 1800s until around 1920. They were mobile ensembles, often amassing over 100 members and would compete with other neighbouring groups. Bombo Productions has revived and transferred this beautiful idea of community singing to this century and expanded the repertoire to include other Cuban-based styles.

Taught by David Pattman and Vicky Jassey

Coro de Clave Weekender: London (Attend in-person or *virtually)

16th – 18th of July
We are offering a Coro de Clave weekend in Hackney, (venue details tbc as they depend on COVID rules). The aim of the weekend is to learn or practice the songs we have been teaching online as well as enjoy meeting up and socialising. We will work on 5 songs over the weekend. We will send each of the arrangements in audio form and the words prior to the workshop. We invite all participants to join us at a Rumba on the afternoon of Sunday 18th July where we then have the option– if we want to – of performing a couple of the numbers we have been working on.

*Virtual attendance involves live streaming of the class and two-way interaction with the class via Zoom.
