Juan de Marcos & the Afro-Cuban All Stars

Juan de Marcos first gained notice in the US as founder of the Buena Vista Social Club. But de Marcos is just as interested in promoting Cuba’s brilliant young musicians as in highlighting Cuba’s senior talent. The Afro-Cuban All Stars not only features a multi-generational cast, the group draws on both classic Cuban styles like son and danzón and contemporary dance rhythms like timba.

Raices: A Series Curated by John Santos

A concert series of diverse Latino (American) music representing hemispheric creativity in a wide range of formats interpreted by several of the most dynamic interpreters in the field. The term America in its true sense refers to North, South and Central America as well as the Caribbean islands. Accordingly, Latin American music defies brief descriptions. Folk styles and rhythms in traditional and evolutionary settings, dance music and jazz play seminal roles in this series.
