  • October 14, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Merchant Hall

The pulse of the Caribbean fills the air as Cuba's most prominent musicians share their rich musical heritage, from the Rumba to the Cha-Cha-Cha to the Habanera. Journey to the land of white-sand beaches, swirling cigar smoke, and swinging music with the acclaimed Havana Cuba All-Stars. This exciting band brings the Cuban vibe to life with rhythmic drums and castanets, wailing trumpets, masterful acoustic guitar, and amazing vocals. Devoted to presenting the wide tapestry that exists in Cuban music — from Latin dance to soulful ballads — this concert presents the great musical traditions of the Cuban people. "The Asere Friendship Tour" is The Havana Cuba All-Stars' debut U.S. tour and celebrates the new open friendship between the United States and Cuba. Bringing the musical traditions of their forefathers to the U.S. for the first time, the group's Spanish vocals and traditional songs are sure to leave audiences dancing in the aisles.
