Afro-Cuban All Stars Tour Continues

Eugene Friday, Jan. 23 - then Seattle, Minneapolis and Bethesda

***Click Here for the Rest of the Tour Dates***

ACAS played two sold out shows at Freight & Salvage in Berkeley with several new members and several new pieces, including a tremendous timba original (Se fue y me dijo) and a show-stopping medley of classic Puerto Rican plenas. Alto songo featured a fascinating set of improvised décimas in Controversia Cubana style--featuring vocalist Emilio Suárez and De Marcos, who has become a formidable lead vocalist in his own right, incorporating subtle blues and hiphop inflections at various points. Bay Area master John Santos introduced the show and sat in for a fiery conga solo.
