CalypSamba Featuring Persussionist Scott Kettner

CalypSamba, the Coastal Carolina world percussion ensemble, will present an evening of cross-cultural fusion music featuring percussionist Scott Kettner and direct by Jesse Willis, associate professor in the Department of Music. Kettner and the ensemble will blend a variety of music styles that draw on influences from New Orleans, the Caribbean and Brazil. A master percussionist, bandleader and educator, Kettner is the guiding force behind the Nation Beat, a band with teeming, vibrant rhythms that find common ground in the primal maracatu rhythm of Brazil’s northeastern region. This event will be presented November 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wheelwright Auditorium on Coastal Carolina University’s main campus. Admission: $7.
