About Music from the Sole
A tap dance and live music company that blurs the line between concert dance and music performance, Music From The Sole celebrates tap’s roots in the African diaspora, particularly its connections to Afro-Brazilian dance and music and its lineage to forms like house dance and passinho (Brazilian funk). The New Yorker notes that the group’s “dancers, whose bodies also provide percussion, are in a constant give-and-take with musicians on piano, sax and bass. The feeling is that of being at a family reunion, in which every family member has something to say.”

Led by Brazilian choreographer Leonardo Sandoval and composer Gregory Richardson, Music from the Sole’s work embraces tap’s unique nature as a blend of sound and movement, incorporating wide-ranging influences like samba, passinho, Afro-Cuban, jazz and house.
