Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra: Musica Nueva 6
Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra present their annual new music concert exploring fresh directions in Afro Latin Big Band Jazz.
The program will feature the Brass Band Traditions in the New World, including the Banda music of Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and other Latin American countries and will also examines lesser-known sub-genres of Spanish music.
The evening will feature new works by Pablo Mayor, Miguel Blanco, Arturo O’Farrill and Adam O’Farrill and includes performances by guest artists Cristina Pato, Antonio Lizana and others. In addition, in partnership with Symphony Space, the Orchestra will present a new co-commissioned work by Papo Vazquez that focuses on the Latino contribution to the Harlem Renaissance.
