Charanga Carolina is the only university-based Cuban Charanga ensemble in the state of North Carolina. The Cuban “Charanga” ensemble features flute, violins, brass, piano, bass, and Latin percussion. It is traditionally associated with danzón, a musical and dance style with roots in European light classical and Afro-Cuban music. The Charanga also played a central role in the development of salsa music in the 1960s and 1970s in New York City and continues to play an important part in contemporary Cuban and Latin dance music.

UNC’s Charanga Carolina specializes in Cuban danzón, contemporary Cuban salsa, New York-style salsa and occasionally performs other Latin American music styles such as merengue, bomba, bossa nova, and tango. The ensemble is committed to bringing these important musical repertories in the history of Latin American dance music to life for Carolina students, faculty, and staff and our surrounding communities.

Dub International


Listen to Bonus interview of local Dub artists from Dub Addis and The Unsustainables 

One of the many great musical exports of the island of Jamaica was the invention of Dub. A musical style featuring the drum and bass tracks of studio recordings and made the producer the leader of the band. The producer would use the drum and bass tracks a foundation and then manipulate the previously recorded horn, piano, guitar, and vocal tracks fading them in and out an adding affects such as an echo. Dub has since infected nearly every musical corner of our world being integrated into other cultures and producing new music never envisioned by these Jamaican producers. Join Jazz Incognito, with special guest Nth Degree, as we travel the world sampling Dub styles from the continents of Africa, South America, North America, Asia, and Europe.
