Septeto Nacional
His 11-piece band of great timba musicians will begin full force at 8 pm, and by the 10 pm show there may be some surprises. 

Hearings this week in Washington, D.C. on lifting the embargo, along with sold out Septeto Nacional shows on the East Coast – have added to the buzz across the U.S. that Cuban music is back full force. Support these internationally recognized musicians and our Bay Area musicians as well.

Both shows are expected to sell out - advance ticket purchase is recommended (click here to buy).

Are The Rumors True?

Ah hello out there? Reportedly Los Van Van has confirmed that they are playing in the next Playboy Jazz Festival! And these 2 flyers for upcoming Diakara and Pupy y los que Son Son shows at S.O.B.s (in New York City) have surfaced. What is going on? As far as we know Pupy is in Italy during that time. Let's hope that there is a coming wave of TIMBA concerts. 

Pupy at SOBs??Diakara at SOBs??

Please help us figure out if any of this is true or just BS. Click here to follow our forum thread on the coming wave of Cuban music. Bring those bands over already people.
