After Party


Jesús Alemañy, founder of Latin orchestra ¡Cubanismo!, achieved fame as the brilliant 15-year-old trumpet player for the iconic Cuban son group Sierra Maestra. His all-star band performs sizzling dance tunes that recall the vintage big-band sound, traditional rumba, cha-cha, danzon, and pa’ca rhythms arranged in the descarga (jam) tradition developed by Cuban jazz players of the 1940s.
