This is our annual fundraising dance to support our Nova Scotia - Cuba Cultural Exchange Project
Jazz musician Jeff Goodspeed creates harmony between Nova Scotia, Cuba
A veteran Halifax musician has been promoting harmony between the music scenes in Nova Scotia and Cuba for more than two decades. Jeff Goodspeed has enjoyed an enviable career as a composer, arranger, saxophonist, flautist and woodwind player.
The Los Primos Project has been offering small ensembles classes for 20 years. Motivated students, rehearsing in small ensembles directed by Jeff Goodspeed, and other professional musicians, learn to play music in all styles and learn to improvise with ease. When the first few groups from our project went to Cuba, they became known as the Canadian Primos. They went on to gain notoriety from their standing-ovation performances at the Atlantic Jazz Festival and their energetic dance sets at the Dance for All Ages.
