Dr Adrian Hearn, Ph.D


An esteemed academic and percussionist,  Adrian visits Cuba frequently to research the influences of the Afro-Cuban religion Santería and its associated music on community welfare projects.  This has involved training and initiation as omo añá, or son of the sacred batá drums. His extensive knowledge on Cuban culture and sacred rhythms of Cuba allow for many invitations to lecture around the world as well as teach and perform these ancient traditions proficiently.
Adrian is a Professor of Latin American Studies at the University of Melbourne. Click here for information about his multicultural arts project Suns of Mercury
