Mark Lotz & Shango’s Dance

“Shango’s Dance” is the fusion of an Afro Cuban vocal and drum ensemble with the Lotz Of Music quintet led by flutist/composer Mark Alban Lotz. The project is a creative global platform for some of vocalists and instrumentalists, each representing their own cultural background, but combining them to create something new. “Shango’s Dance” combines the powerful rhythms and chants from the Santería & Yoruba religious tradition with the art of improvised music. They released three CD’s (1997, 1998, 2004) with their own interpretations of religious Santeria music. Some of them recorded in Havana, Cuba.
