Juan de Marcos and the Afro-Cuban All-Stars
with Harold López-Nussa Trio
Generously sponsored by Neda Nobari Foundation
The electrifying Afro-Cuban All-Stars, under the guidance of legendary Juan de Marcos, pay tribute to Cuba’s golden age of music when the band makes its debut at the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts (The Soraya). Mixing the joy and melancholy for Cuba’s past with the exuberant sounds of contemporary performance, the 17-piece Afro-Cuban All-Stars bring the next generation of Cuban music to life on stage. In addition, the evening will also feature The Soraya debut of the Havana-based Harold López-Nussa Trio.
