This exhilarating program featuring 17 musicians, singers, and dancers is under the direction of the incomparable trombonist/composer William Cepeda. A member of Puerto Rico’s legendary Cepeda family, he has worked with a veritable “who’s who” in the jazz and Latin music worlds, including Dizzy Gillespie and Eddie Palmieri. The program ranges from the traditional to the contemporary, encompassing the dynamic African-derived bomba and plena – the island’s two most distinctive folkloric traditions– and innovative “Afrorican jazz,” which melds jazz harmonies with popular Caribbean rhythms.

Tickets $30
