Juan de Marcos &
The Afro-Cuban All Stars
Juan de Marcos and the Afro-Cuban All Stars are devoted to promoting the complete story of Cuban music. De Marcos first gained notoriety in the US as founder of the Buena Vista Social Club, an ensemble of legendary Cuban musicians assembled to revive the music of pre-revolutionary Cuba to its golden age. De Marcos established The Afro-Cuban All Stars to promote Cuba’s brilliant young musicians and highlight its senior talent. Featuring a rotating, multi-generational cast, the group draws on the classic Cuban styles of son and danzón, along with contemporary dance rhythms like timba.
