Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2018 | SF

Between May and October in 2018, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents 100 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

Cuban saxophonist, percussionist and composer Yosvany Terry is in the vanguard of Latin American musicians transforming the US jazz scene. Blending a verdant continuum of influences from West Africa, Cuba, and American jazz, he’s created a singular sound, one of the most ambitious and consequent cross-cultural visions on the contemporary scene. His sextet features a stellar cast of longtime collaborators, including his younger brother, bassist Yunior Terry, and fellow Cubans Osmany Paredes (piano) and Mauricio Herrera (percussion). Oakland-born trumpet star Ambrose Akinmusire and Miami-reared Haitian-American drummer Obed Calvaire, a member of the SFJAZZ Collective, round out the all-star combo. An innovator steeped in tradition, Terry creates original music that vividly embodies a sonic world marked by Afro-Cuban polyrhythms and exquisite post-bop angles.
