Afro-Cuban All Stars
The Shedd Institute is pleased to bring Juan De Marcos González and his extraordinary Afro-Cuban All Stars back to Eugene and the Jaqua Concert Hall. De Marcos, the Cuban maestro and key figure in the formation of the recognized Cuban bands Sierra Maestra and the Buena Vista Social Club, forms each Afro-Cuban All Stars orchestra from the crème-of-the-crème of the Cuban diaspora around the world. "Cuban music is collective," De Marcos explains. "These musicians are incredible, and we are rehearsing hard so that the concert will be full of energy." They will be performing Grammy songs like Puntillita's “El Amor Verdadero,” and Gonzalez' “Reconciliacion,” as well as new material written by Ignacio Herrera and Gonzalez himself.
