About Us

About Us

Welcome to Arrollando, a place to PLAY-SING-DANCE-PARADE, honouring and nurturing the Cuban Carnaval traditions. 
Arrollando (ah-roh-yando) comes from the Spanish term, "Arrollar" (ah-roh-yar) which means to drive or roll through something. In Cuba, "Arrollar" is known as the action to parade with a conga or comparsa group through different neighbourhoods. With Arrollando you will learn the amazing syncopations of Cuban Carnaval rhythms from Havana to Santiago de Cuba. We will also enjoy the call and response melodies and harmonies between the percussion, horns and chorus/dance sections.
