About the Show
Acclaimed world-class musician Nachito Herrera’s Afro-Latin Renaissance combines classical Afro-Latin Cuban jazz, dance, and painting, drawing on the roots of Afro-American and Latin American communities and visiting the heart of our cultural identities. Using colors, flavors, and authenticity, Afro-Latin Renaissance proves once again the power of music as the universal language of unity and peace.
