Afro Cuban All Stars Bringing Their Sound to Great Performances at Vanderbilt With the Legendary Juan De Marcos
Juan de Marcos – the same man that brought us the Buena Vista Social Club – gives his gift of combining top notch musicians with just the right energy to create a band like no other!
Nashville, TN – Friday, April 1 Great Performances at Vanderbilt brings the Afro Cuban All Stars to Vanderbilt’s Langford Auditorium. A towering artistic figure in his homeland, Juan de Marcos González (formerly tres player for Sierra Maestra) is a man on a mission—to display to the world the wealth, diversity, and vitality of Cuban music. His All Stars’ 1997 album, A Toda Cuba Le Gusta, was the first to be recorded during the now-legendary Buena Vista Social Club sessions. Today, concerts with the orchestra celebrate the classic montuno sound with a rich mix of all styles of Cuban music, including timba, guajira, and Afro-Cuban jazz
