The UM Salsa Project is a collaboration between the University of Mississippi’s percussion studio, directed by Ricky Burkhead, and the jazz studio, directed by Michael Worthy.  Made up of UM students, staff, and alumni from around the nation, the Project expresses its love and respect for salsa and other Latin styles with all of the energy and technicality Latin music demands.

The UM Salsa Project next performs Saturday, April 27th at 10:15 am at the Double Decker Festival on the Oxford Square.
