Arturo’s father, Chico O’Farrill, has been called the greatest of all Afro-Cuban artists. Like father, like son? With jazz running in his veins, Arturo was born as Cuba closed its borders, growing up instead a citizen of the world, with a Mexican mother and a New York upbringing. These influences forged Arturo’s pan-Latin tropical sound, with an unmistakable nod to his father coming from his band’s Cuban percussion section. O’Farrill was among the first ex-pats to return to Cuba and was invited to the re-opening of the U.S. Embassy in 2015.
