We are excited to present our final performance of the academic year! The program will consist of a unique blend of traditional and contemporary songs spanning the entire scope of the Afro-Latin genre, mixed together in new and exciting ways. We'll put a Latin spin on pieces from American musicals, lullabies, and African Orisha chants, as well as the usual compelling blend of Rumba, classic Salsa and Latin Jazz. The concert includes songs composed or performed by greats such as Celia Cruz, El Gran Combo, Tito Puente, Ruben Blades, Johnny Pacheco and John Calloway. The concert also premieres all-new compositions that have only been recently released as well.
