The Afro-Cuban Jazz concert is about the music of Cuba and Jazz which today is a part of the larger form, Latin Jazz. Centuries of cultural assimilation between Africa, Europe, and the Americas have led to one of the greatest musical art forms, Latin Jazz. Rooted in dark histories but fighting for the freedom of human expression, Latin Jazz is the celebration of life. Living Traditions. We have always danced, sung, loved, expressed and we always will.
Founded by one of India`s leading Latin Jazz pianists, Pradyumna Singh Manot, Los Gatos, ay mama! performs Afro-Caribbean and Latin music. They are musical ambassadors committed to preserving and promoting the Caribbean`s rich multicultural and artistic heritage. The guest artist for this concert is world class conga player from Cuba, Miguelo Valdes. Miguelo has performed with The Afro Cuban All Stars, Chucho Valdes, Celia Cruz amongst many others.
