MIAMI – RumbaTap is an original concept created by Max Pollak that melds Afro-Cuban music and dance, American jazz, body percussion and tap dance – and it’s coming to the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMD- CAC) as part of the Cabaret Series on Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, February 26 at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 on day of show. SMD- CAC is located at 10950 SW 211 Street in Cutler Bay.
The music/dance ensemble, created and named after Pollack’s unique body percussion/tap concept, premiered in 1999 featuring Bobby Sanabria, Cuban Rumba legend Barbaro Ramos, and Paul Carlon’s Latin jazz quartet Grupo Los Santos.
Consisting of marimba, saxophone trio, vocalists and an explosive percussion section led by six body-drumming tap dancers, the multi- talented international cast of musicians and dancers evokes a powerful “Orquesta” capturing the deep grooves and charged electricity of Afro-Latin Soul.
RumbaTap has toured throughout Europe, Japan, Cuba and the United States, recently performing to a capacity crowd at New York City’s Central Park Summer Stage.
