Jesús Díaz Y Su Habana Afro-cuban

May 7 @ 1:00 PM PDT

Jesús Díaz Y Su Habana Afro-cuban

Born and raised in Havana and based in Oakland since the early 1980s, conga master Jesús Díaz is an international force whose music encompasses Cuba, the U.S. and West Africa. When trumpet star Ambrose Akinmusire wanted to infuse his 2020 album on the tender spot of every calloused moment with Yoruba soul, he featured Díaz’s chanting. With his Habana Afro-Cuban Ensamble, Díaz showcases his original compositions and arrangements, drawing on the bottomless well of folkloric and popular Cuban music.
