Seattle Women's Pan Project:
The Seattle Women’s Steel Pan Project gives women and girls the opportunity to learn how to play and perform Caribbean steel drums and is dedicated to creating a space for women and girls in music through arts education.
The project is based out of the Martin Luther King Community Center in Seattle and is a multi-generational, multi-ethnic women’s Caribbean steel drum band. The project started in 2013 under the administrative direction of Oriana Estrada and the artistic direction of Michael Shantz.
Clave Gringa is a Seattle band, formed in 2008, to showcase Cuban-jazz compositions of Ann Reynolds. The energy and spirit of Clave Gringa reflects a commitment to an authentic expression of music and is an invitation to get up and move. Repertoire includes a broad spectrum of Cuban styles from Cuban son and danzon to rumba and Afro Cuban with an infusion of American jazz. The band leader, Ann Reynolds, has studied in Cuba for many years.
