Orquestra La Moderna Tradicion | SFJAZZ Summer Jazz 2016: Free Outdoor Music Festival | Palo Alto

Moderna_Tradicion-23Orquesta La Moderna Tradición bursts with the sweet, yet powerful sound of the Afro-Cuban charanga orchestra, which features violins and woodwinds interlocking with driving afro-Cuban rhythms.

Since 1996, the 11-piece group has thrilled audiences across the country with a mix of contemporary timba-infused arrangements guaranteed to get you on your feet and traditional danzónes that transport you back to the Havana social clubs of the 1950s.
