overview

Celebrating the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra's 15th year, multi-Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill and Chucho Valdés reinterpret the works of their legendary fathers, Bebo Valdés and Chico O'Farrill, side-by-side on Steinway pianos and with the full 18-piece Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, plus collaborative performances by the talented younger generations O’Farrill (Zack & Adam) and Valdés (Jesse & Leyanis).  

This encounter between two great family legacies continues a dynamic conversation between Cuba and the United States.  O'Farrill and Valdés are living proof that culture is more important than politics and ideology, and that love and art are the highest power. 

This historic project will become a new album, to be recorded immediately after the show in NYC and released later this year.
