La Habana, New Orleans & New York: More Than 400 Years of Shared Musical Culture

This show is part of our month-long Celebrating the Afro-Latin Roots of Jazz series.  The 2023 series is curated by trumpeter and bandleader, Kali Rodriguez-Peña.

In this performance/workshop, Kalí Rodríguez-Peña talks about how the musical languages that developed in La Habana, New Orleans, and New York during the last 400 years share more than what is usually understood. From the Atlantic Slave Trade to the contemporary sounds of Black American Music to modern Cuban music, experience an evening of music and history with Kalí’s Cuban Quartet.
