Cuban piano phenomenon from Havana Dayramir González brings a special program titled “Havana Today, Afro Cuban Jazz” a tribute to Chucho Valdes, Chico O’Farrill and Chick Corea featuring his Habana enTRANCé quartet with Dayramir González on piano, Juan Chiavassa on drums, Dean Torrey on bass, and Christian Moraga on percussion. Representing the young generation of Afro-Cuban jazz, Dayramir González performed in 15,000-seater stadiums with legends like Chucho and Bebo Valdes and headlined Carnegie Hall.
Rooted in zapateado jarocho, the traditional dance from Veracruz, Mexico, Julia del Palacio premieres “Golpe de Mar” (Struck by the Sea). A reflection on son jarocho dancers’ intentional movement, agency, and individual style, “Golpe de Mar” unpacks this 300-year-old style and proposes new ways of approaching it, enhancing the role of the dancer within the musical ensemble and celebrating dancers’ contributions to the preservation and growth of the genre.
This concert is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
