This year’s concert features the Arturo O’Farrill Afro Latin Jazz Quintet, with Arturo O’Farrill (piano), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Zack O’Farrill (drums), Liany Mateo (bass), and Victor Pablo (percussion).
The quintet has toured and performed at jazz festivals and clubs around the world.

Born in Mexico, O’Farrill grew up in New York City, and began his professional career with jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Bowie, Wynton Marsalis, Harry Belafonte (where he served a music director), and other jazz luminaries.
In 2007, he founded the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance, education, and preservation of Afro Latin music.
