Chucho Valdés: Irakere 40 at Town Hall NYC 11/10/15
(Published: October 01, 2015)

Winner of five Grammy and three Latin Grammy Awards, the Cuban pianist, composer and arranger Chucho Valdés is one of the most influential figures in modern Afro-Cuban jazz. For this unique performance at Town Hall, Valdés celebrates the 40th anniversary of his original groundbreaking ensemble Irakere. One of the most important bands in the history of Latin jazz, Irakere's members included artists such as Arturo Sandoval and Paquito D'Rivera, who eventually became solo stars in their own right.

For the first time in decades, Valdés and a band of young musicians will revisit and reinterpret the music of his trailblazing group Irakere, keeping this dynamic music alive.
"All those in attendance ended up standing up singing and ancing to hits such as Xiomara Mayoral or Bacalao con pan," wrote a recent reviewer of an Irakere 40 performance in the El PaĆ­s newspaper. "The giant of Cuban piano claimed his place not only as interpreter but as the creator of a sound that is now the lingua franca in Latin jazz but 40 years ago...must've sounded like a revolution."

This concert is a part of World Music Institute's Masters of Cuban Music Series

Tues November 10, 2015 | 8pm at Town Hall - 123 West 43rd Street

Tickets start at $55
