In the original conjunto format, we pay tribute to the biggest innovator in 20th century Cuban music: Arsenio Rodriguez Scull, a blind tres player coming from the Son Montuno genre whose music style forms the underpinning of what was later called salsa. We will present some of his lesser-known but equally interesting compositions.

Michael Eckroth, jazz and world jazz pianist, in conjunction with the above musicians presents a night of latin jazz music. Eckroth is most widely known for his work with John Scofield (New Morning DVD) and as the writer/pianist of the grammy-nominated Orquesta Akokán eponymous album.
