Jose Valdes & the Mambo All Stars
Classic Latin dance rhythms
Thursday, July 11, 2019
6 – 8 p.m.
The Mambo All-Stars is an energetic, dynamic band that plays mambo, cha-cha, and boleros—the classic Latin dance rhythms. Authentic Latin “swing con clave” is the trademark of this group. The material is from both classic and modern Latino artists such as Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, La Sonora Ponceña, La India, Cubanisimo, and Pérez Prado. José Valdes, leader of the group, has worked with greats such as José Fajardo, Tito Puente, and Eddie Palmieri. The artistry is exciting, with driving montuno rhythms and a fiery percussion section, which always gets everyone dancing.
