The highly acclaimed Stanford-Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble plays its first performance of the Spring quarter, at the Stanford Coffee House in Tressider Student Union, a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and one of the best "hangs" on campus.
The group played to a sold out audience for their recent Winter concert with guest artists the VW Brothers. If you missed that concert, here is your FREE change to hear the band again.
The band has been recipient of numerous grants and awards and has been mentored by several luminaries in the field such as Ray Vega, Andrea Brachfeld, John Santos, John Calloway, Wayne Wallace, Jesus Diaz.
Directed by Grammy-nominated pianist Murray Low, the group performs classic and contemporary works from both the Latin and North American songbook. The group plays music from the entire spectrum of Afro-Latin music and jazz, including son-montuno, rumba, timba, comparsa, songo, salsa, boleros, jazz and funk. The music is for both dancing and listening and is guaranteed to get you moving.
