ConClave ConClave New York City The ConClave is a (sac)religious gathering/assembly/PARTY where music and dance converse through our bodies. Created by Cesar Toribio (Seezer Tee/ Framboy Ann) and Alex Suarez (Cienfuegos) The Clave (Clah- veh) musically speaking, is the key rhythm/pattern that reveals the place of every thing in space and time. Its what makes all different rhythms, harmonies, dances and people understood at a time. It provides context. The clave is a pattern, which has two opposing halves. The first half is antecedent and moving, and the second half is consequent and grounded (or vice versa). It is the foundation of the most ancient language. It is the yin and yang, the yes and no, the X and Y, the question and answer to why we are all in the same room.
