Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley is doing its part to help warm up Seattle during these cold February nights. Starting Thursday, Juan de Marcos and the Afro-Cuban All Stars will take to the Jazz Alley stage during a four night stand that promises to bring the trademark sounds of Cuba to the Emerald City.
If you are at all familiar with the Oscar-nominated documentary “Buena Vista Club” then you’ve definitely been swept up by the fiery sounds of Juan de Marcos. De Marcos and his Afro-Cuban All Stars were on the scene in the late 90s when the Buena Vista Social Club sessions were recoded. Their contribution to this legendary period was the Grammy-nominated recording “A Toda Cuba le Gusta” as well as their performances throughout the documentary.
You can catch De Marcos and his Afro-Cuban All Stars Thrusday through Sunday night at Jazz Alley. For additional information on showtimes and to purchase tickets, please visit: www.jazzalley.com.
