Grab your dancing shoes for this spirited Skirball Stages performance! If you’re on your own, you can dance as if no one is watching. No one is! If you have friends and family, roll up the rug and get everyone on the dance floor for a fun evening of Latin music.
Cuban-born musician Yosmel Montejo, fresh from the release of his first album, Red Suitcase, delights from the Skirball with his band of accomplished Latin jazz artists. Then, joining from his home in Canada is Vox Sambou. A native Haitian, sambou incorporates traditional rhythms of Haiti with afro beat jazz, reggae, and hip-hop. Together Montejo and Sambou take us on a trip through the intoxicating beats of the Caribbean.
In addition, Skirball Suppers offers a delicious four-course meal available for pre-order ( until Wednesday April 28 at 4pm) and carry-out the night of the premiere, on Saturday May1 between 5pm and 7:15pm. The menu was conceived by Executive Chef Sean Sheridan and features dishes inspired by the cuisine of Cuba and Haiti.
The virtual concert film is free and will be premiering on the Skirball’s You Tube channel Saturday, May 1 at 8pm PDT.
