RumbaTap Album Release Show



Percussive dance innovator Max Pollak releases his first CD recording as a leader, revolutionizing the way we perceive tap dancing and body percussion with a groundbreaking, resonant tap sound.

 

If Fred Astaire Got Grit and Was Swept Up by Cuban Orishas… Max Pollak Taps the Fourth Dimension of Rumba

Dancer and percussionist Max Pollak’s new CD release is a stunning portal to an entirely new sonic experience of Afro-Latin music driven by percussive dance. Pollak calls this unique blend of tap dance, Afro-Cuban music, body-percussion and singing – all done simultaneously – RumbaTap.

Whether performing a-cappella, or backed by horns and vibes, Pollak and his pioneering repertoire of Afro-Cuban and other globally savvy pieces embody that sweet spot where the movement of the drummer meets the pulse of the dancer. Pollak and the musicians and dancers of RumbaTap send infectious moves and rhythms through space and time straight to your ears.

The first part of the show : "Dark Sand" with Christos Rafalides on vibraphone and Sergio Salvatore on piano.
