In July of 2018, Victor Haskins traveled to Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
While there, he studied playing traditional atabaque drums. These drums
are an integral and vital part of Candomblé (an Afro-Brazilian syncretic
religion) ceremonies. As a result of that powerful learning experience,
Victor took the very specific rhythms (17 in all) he learned and composed
original music to them for his band, Victor Haskins' "Skein". Come join
us at Black Iris to experience a special, one-of-a-kind cultural amalgam!
Victor Haskins' "Skein" personnel:
Victor Haskins: compositions, melodies, and harmonies
Tony Martucci: drumset
Will Roman: congas
