In conjunction with the Si Cuba! (Whose partner organizations include The Int’l Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 and SPARC) event at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Arturo Sandoval is in concert at the Hollywood Bowl with Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club featuring Omara Portuondo.
This special Cuban-themed evening of scorching rhythms and infectious improvisations includes projections of photos depicting historic and present day Cuba.
AUG 24: This concert will feature photo projections from the Getty’s historic photographic exhibit, A Revolutionary Project: Cuba from Walker Evans to Now, showing May 17-Oct 2, 2011 at the Getty Center.
Isn’t that truly special. The prodigal son, an escaped slave now living in freedom, dances for the former slave master.
This just breaks my heart, as I just love, love, Arturo’s music. No more.
Here’s the graphic of choice for Si Cuba, they should get together with Oliphant.
