Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra Fandango at the Wall with the Villalobos Brothers

Friday, October 15 at 8:00pm

“Remarkable and dynamic music that blends quintessential son jarocho songs with lush big band jazz arrangements.” Variety

Led by Grammy-winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra is heralded as “one of the best jazz orchestras in existence” by The New Yorker. A transnational project that prompted an album, book and documentary, Fandango at the Wall was inspired by the annual Fandango Fronterizo festival at the Tijuana-San Diego border. Joining the orchestra are the Villalobos Brothers, who masterfully fuse the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music.
