Arturo O’Farrill Quintet

Whether he plays in a small or large line-up, Arturo O'Farrill's music always sounds orchestral. It will be the influence of the Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, which he took over from his father, Chico O'Farrill. Renamed the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, it developed its own genre that connects styles and traditions from all over the world. Arturo also has the same mission with his quintet, which will perform on our stage.
