Event Description

The Cuban Research Institute is pleased to announce the 1 4th installment of its annual concert series. From the sensuality and seductive melodies of the bolero, to the exotic and complex rhythms of the mambo and cha cha, Cuba's rich musical heritage spans centuries and has influenced most popular music of our time. Virtuoso pianists and Cuban brothers Orlay Alonso and Orlando Alonso present an immersive experience that places the audience at the center of the "Golden Era" of Cuban music and entertainment of the 1940s and 1950s. This interactive show features a variety of Cuban styles such as mambo, cha cha, salsa, bolero, son, danz6n, and conga, and includes works by Celia Cruz, Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes, Miguel Fallde, and Damaso Perez Prado, among others.
