“Santos – Skin to Skin.”

The San Francisco Bay Area musician, activist and educator John Santos is featured in a new film which links the rhythms of his African ancestors with current struggles against urban gentrification and social and racial injustice. In the documentary “Santos – Skin to Skin,” the filmmakers follow this virtuoso of the congas from rehearsals in his garage studio in Oakland to gigs with congueros in the barrios of Puerto Rico and great concert stages. Santos, one of the foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music, has played along side jazz legends Eddie Palmieri and Orestes Vilató. This is a special Holiday program.

Guest: John Santos, Seven-time Grammy Nominated Percussionist, Educator, Producer, Composer, Oakland, CA.
