Afro-Cuban All-Stars Coming to Strathmore on Feb. 24

The Music Center at Strathmore will be rocking Friday, Feb. 24 when the Afro-Cuban All Stars put on a show that promises to be very lively.

MyMCM talked to bandleader Juan de Marcos about this unique show.

The Cuban group is devoted to promoting the complete story of Cuban music. De Marcos first gained fame in the U.S. as a founder of the Buena Vista Social Club, an ensemble of legendary Cuban musicians assembled to revive the music of pre-revolutionary Cuba to its golden age. De Marcos established the Afro-Cuban All-Stars to promote Cuba’s brilliant young musicians and highlight its veteran talent. Featuring a rotating, multi-generational cast, the group draws on the classic Cuban styles of son and danzón, along with contemporary dance rhythms like timba, according to Strathmore.
