JUAN DE MARCOS & THE AFRO CUBAN ALL STARS
FEATURING SPECIAL INVITED GUESTS: MARIO “MAYITO” RIVERA AND ALFREDO DE LA FE!
Afro-Cuban All Stars is a unique orchestra that has always been devoted to promoting the full range of Cuban music, one that embraces several generations and all musical styles. Over the years many of the band’s musicians have become international stars, including brilliant performers such as Ruben Gonzalez, Ibrahim Ferrer, Guillermo Rubalcaba, Amadito Valdes and Manuel “The Guajiro” Mirabal.
After years of success – including four Grammy nominations, being the subject of several documentaries and films, and recipients of many other distinctions – the All Stars are certainly one of the best-known and successful Cuban orchestras along with Los Van Van and Irakere.
Juan de Marcos Gonzalez & The Afro-Cuban All Stars will share the stage with one of the most emblematic bands of the city of NY La Tipica 73 who celebrate their 50th Anniversary with Adalberto Santiago
