JAS Cafe: Cubanismo

Showtimes: 9:15 PM
7 PM show is SOLD Out for National Council private party.
This sizzling Cuban band with 11 musicians on-stage takes listeners through the classic repertoire of the great Cuban rhythms. From Cuban classics and jazz to Mardi Gras and mambo, the band delivers horns driving the arrangements and various percussion anchoring the pulse.
Jesús Alemañy , founder of Latin orchestra ¡Cubanismo!, came to fame as a brilliant 15 year old trumpet player for the iconic Cuban son group Sierra Maestra. The all-star ¡Cubanismo! orchestra play sizzling dance tunes full of swaggering horn charts and wild polyrhythms that recall the vintage big-band son sound, traditional rumba, cha-cha and lesser known danzon and pa’ca rhythms arranged in the descarga (jam) tradition developed by Cuban jazz players of the ‘40s.
