Chucho Valdés “The Dean of Latin Jazz”
Winner of four Grammy Awards, Chucho Valdés is a titan of the keyboard whose style is breathtaking. In the Latin and jazz communities, Valdés is revered as one of Cuba’s greatest jazz pianists. Bebop jazz meets Cuban dance rhythms in Valdés’ sophisticated and listener-friendly music. Valdés’ talents combined with those of the five members who comprise the Afro-Cuban Messengers Quintet are sure to dazzle. The Messengers perform with a technical brilliance that has no real equal but they undergird their work with the African percussive rituals that stand at the very root of jazz. The result is a stand-up set that will be one of ARTS SA’s signature performances of the year.
