TAMPA, Fla. — The Straz Center for the Performing Arts presents The Havana Cuba All-Stars on Sunday, Nov. 27, at 4:00 p.m. Direct from Havana on the Asere Friendship Tour, Cuba’s greatest musicians assemble as The Havana Cuba All-Stars for Cuban Nights, an electrifying program celebrating the music of the Cuban people.
This 11-piece ensemble unites congas, cajones, guitars, trombones, trumpets and a variety of percussion for an explosive, infectious interpretation of traditional son music that has audiences out of their seats and dancing in the aisles. Staying true to an acoustic base, they have developed a fresh sound with inventive songwriting, and have preserved the traditions of the Cuban musical art form. The Asere Friendship Tour is The Havana Cuba All-Stars debut U.S. tour, celebrating the new open friendship between the U.S. and Cuba. Asere is the Cuban word for friendship.
Son music is a style of music and dance that originated in Cuba and gained worldwide popularity during the 1930’s. The Cuban son is one of the most influential and widespread forms of Latin American music: its derivatives and fusions, especially salsa, have spread across the world.
