[Artist Spotlight] Giovanni Imparato

Giovanni Imparato is a Neapolitan master drum (tumbadora, Bata drums, bongos, timbales), and he’s identified with “AFROCUBANìA”, an Afro and Cuban mixed percussion genre.

His play is influenced by Cuban and Afro music, and also by the religious path of “Ana”, a great YORUBA deity, an African religion which continued to Cuba and South America through the slavery diaspora.
