Program notes

Sink your teeth into another world with Chucho Valdés and Archie Shepp’s Afro-cuban project. Just as the dog wanders off stage at the beginning of the show, it all starts with a meandering run from Valdés on the keys. Through the complete tools of an ever-so-talented eight-piece ensemble, this concert truly shows the influence and importance of the collective experience. In the third piece, Yansa, a call-and-response style brings the audience back to a different time and evoques a return to the band's roots.
