YBCA says…

Join us for a lively celebration of Afro-Cuban folklore and creative jazz improvisation, featuring the inimitable sounds of the Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio. The evening opens with performances by Oakland-based Cuban drummer Sandy Perez y Su Ladé and the Ramon Ramos Alayo Dance Company, and culminates with a dance party featuring contemporary Cuban dance music by Rumbaché playing timba, son, and fresh originals.
