"The Havana Cuba All-Stars shook the stage with brilliant performance."—The Berkshire Eagle
The swish of a sequined skirt, a warm tropical breeze, the faint scent of cigar smoke on a starched shirt collar: travel back in time to the golden era of Cuba's posh ballrooms and sultry dance halls with the Havana Cuba All-Stars. Returning this season after its warmly received Berkeley debut two years ago, the ensemble specializes in the evocative vintage sound of Cuban son, with layered percussion, guitars, trumpets, and strings playing the infectious rhythms of rhumba, chachacha, habanera, and guaguanco. For this special "Asere" (friendship) tour, the musicians are accompanied by a troupe of expert dancers from the island.
