March 7, 2017
Miami Light Project and FUNDarte are proud to present the 10th Anniversary of Global Cuba Fest, a month-long celebration of the best musicians from the Cuban diaspora.
For a decade, Miami Light Project and FUNDarte have brought their popular music series to South Florida, celebrating the roots of Cuban music and the genre's funkiest innovations exploring Jazz, son montuno, bolero trova, timba and Afro-Cuban rhythms. This year, come enjoy the music of Nu Deco Ensemble as they perform pieces from rising young Cuban composers, iconic masters, and share the stage with two special guest artists from the Island of Cuba: Dayramir Gonzalez and Danay Suarez.
The evening will take you on a musical adventure with arrangements and new orchestrations by Nu Deco Ensemble Co-Founder & Artistic Director, Sam Hyken, as well as a partnership with Florida Grand Opera to present Jorge Martin's "A Cuban in Vermont" with guest soprano, Elena Galván.
