Bandshell

Chucho Valdés - Jazz Batá + Dafnis Prieto Si o Si Quartet

Wednesday, June 26 , 7:30 pm – 10 pm, 2019

Chucho Valdés and Dafnis Prieto Si o Si Quartet will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Chuco Valdés was born into music; his father, the great pianist and composer Ramón “Bebo” Valdés, led the fabled Sabor de Cuba, considered one of the great orchestras in modern Cuban music history, with which Chucho debuted as a teenager. In 1972, Valdés released Jazz Batá, a forward-thinking convergence of modern jazz and folkloric rhythms that prefigured much of the Afro-Cuban jazz of today. Last year’s Jazz Batá 2 is a brilliant sequel that, almost a half-century later, “burnishes his stature as a towering Afro-Cuban pianist of our time” (WBGO).

With his electrifying quartet, the Cuban percussionist Dafnis Prieto makes music that is “dynamic to the extreme … a slippery amalgam of complex polyrhythm and incantatory melody” (The New York Times). A MacArthur Fellowship, GRAMMY Award, and multiple Latin GRAMMY nominations are among his many honors.
