The warmth of Cuban music will chase winter away for at least one night as Asere! A Fiesta Cubana comes to Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 8 pm.
The joyous celebration of Cuban music features the Havana Cuba All-Stars and three of Cuba’s finest dancing couples. Together they will bring a high-energy celebration of Cuban music and dance styles to Staller Center’s Main Stage. Tickets are $44 at stallercenter.com or by calling (631) 632-ARTS . Discounts are available for seniors, students and children.
The Havana Cuba All-Stars showcases many of Cuba’s greatest musicians, playing rhythms and melodies from the cha cha to the rumba, from “Son Cubano” style to the salsa. The group is inspired by and dedicated to promoting the entire tapestry of Cuban music through a fresh, contemporary lens.
In their “Asere” — or “Friendship” — tour, the dancers and musicians of Cuba work in tandem, bringing a spirited spectacle of song and dance that exemplifies Cuba’s greatest musical traditions.
