Arturo O'Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2022 at 8:00PM

VENUE Matthews Theater


The multi Grammy-award winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALJO), led by pianist, composer, and Artistic Director Arturo O’Farrill, blends the drama of big band jazz, the culture of Latin music, and the virtuosity of eighteen of the world’s most accomplished solo musicians. Fifteen years of critically acclaimed performances internationally have firmly established the ALJO as a standard-bearer. 


Joining him and his musicians will be one of 2019’s biggest breakout stars, the tap dancer and choreographer Ayodele Casel, who has become a powerful voice for the art form. The New York Times called her a tap dancer of “unquestionable radiance,“ and her  recent Joyce Theatre show “ a knockout joyfest.”
