Local Latin band Jaleo faithfully and festively reproduces the Afro-Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Colombian rhythms they draw upon for inspiration. The versatile multicultural ensemble plays a wide variety of Latin styles, including salsa, Latin jazz, cumbia, merengue, bachata, bolero, and cha-cha. Their arrangements and interpretations highlight the joy in the music of the past and present.
This concert celebrates the dual legacies of Arsenio Rodríguez, known as “El Ciego Maravilloso” (“the Marvelous Blind One”), and Cole Porter. A Cuban tres player, composer, and bandleader, Rodríguez laid the foundations for Latin jazz and salsa with the Africanization of son montuno Cuban folk music and the development of the conjunto band format. Porter is one of the greatest American songwriters of all time, and his music continues to touch people from all walks of life.
