About the event

Wednesday, July 31 at 7PM: Global Sounds on the Hill Featuring Swanky Kitchen Band Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital 921 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE Tickets: $20

Swanky Kitchen Band is on an essential quest to revive the traditional music of the Cayman Islands. Set amidst the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the three tiny islands are home to Kitchen Dance Music, an infectiously danceable fiddle-driven style. The Kitchen Dance sound, created through a crossroads of European and African influences, nearly disappeared save for the efforts of Swanky Kitchen Band, the last of the Caymanian Kitchen Bands. The heart of Kitchen Dance music is the driving sound of the fiddle surrounded by a rhythmic groove created by drums, a grater, and a guitar or other stringed instruments. Swanky Kitchen Band has added a modern twist on Caymanian heritage by blending these essential traditional elements with more contemporary instruments to create a 10-piece powerhouse dance band.
