SF State School of Music Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble of SF State: Viñetas

The Afro Cuban Jazz Ensemble of SF State performs Viñetas, an evening of unique individual performances framed with small and large ensemble settings. Music by Consuelo Velázquez, Miles Davis, Yoruba Andabo, Willie Colon, Stevie Wonder, Agustin Lara, Pablo Milanes and McCoy Tyner.

Founded in 1999, the ensemble’s mission is to expose the larger listening audience to the richness of Cuban and other Latin American music styles that have so influenced American popular music styles. Over its 15 year history, the ensemble has performed at San Francisco’s Carnaval, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and live on KPFA-FM as well as with legendary performers such as Orquesta Aragón, Israel “Cachao” Lopez and Benny Velarde. The ensemble has become a significant part of the Bay Area’s multicultural music and art community.
