Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble

Feel the beat of the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble, an octet made up of some of the most virtuosic musicians in jazz today. Based in New York City, the ensemble is part of the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, founded by Grammy-award winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill. Their repertoire honors the pioneers of Latin jazz, like Mario Bauzá and Tito Puente, while keeping a strong foothold in progressing that music by performing contemporary compositions of the genre.
