Waltons World Masters will present the famed Juan de Marcos & The Afro-Cuban All Stars on 28 May 2012 at National Concert Hall series in Dublin, Ireland.
Created and directed by the renowned Juan de Marcos González, leader of the great Cuban group Sierra Maestra and original member of the Buena Vista Social Club, the Afro-Cuban All Stars is a 15-piece dream ensemble comprising four generations of Cuba’s finest musicians.
Their music not only captures the fiery big band sound of pre-Castro 1950s Cuba but also continues to break barriers with brand-new arrangements that celebrate Cuba’s fantastic musical legacy of Latin dance music, swinging big band, Afro-Cuban jazz and more. Together, these superb musicians have sparked a worldwide infatuation with the diversity and vitality of Cuban culture.
