Grammy-winning pianist, composer, and educator Arturo O’Farrill and the extraordinary 18-piece Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra are “a joyful force” (NPR) that fuses Latin rhythms, clave, African-based percussion, modern jazz, and swing. The NYC powerhouse preserves the classic sounds of Latin dance bands while embracing its experimental side, roaring through compositions by Latin music’s best: Machito, Tito Puente, Astor Piazzola, Hermeto Pascoal, and his own father, Chico O’Farrill. A veteran of the groups of Dizzy Gillespie and Harry Belafonte, O’Farrill leads the orchestra in a performance that spans the Americas, playing both traditional cuts and commissioned works with the fire of a mambo workout.
Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President's Initiative for Diversity.
