Stanford's critically-acclaimed latin music ensemble is excited to be performing live once again! As always, we've got an unusual mix of music spanning the entire spectrum of the idiom. In addition to the healthy dose of traditional salsa, modern salsa, and latin jazz, we've got a few unique wrinkles - ancient African folkloric elements mixed with contemporary jazz, old school Cuban Charanga, and funky Timba! Please join us --the music is guaranteed to make you want to jump out of your seat. Don't miss it, it will be an awesome show!
The concert is Saturday, December 2 on the Stanford campus in Dinkelspiel Auditorium at 7:30 PM. Don't forget to get your tickets online - in-person and walk-up purchases are not accepted except for Stanford students attending free with SUID. Buy tickets in advance to save -- $18 general / $13 senior and student.

Hope to see you there!
Established in 2008 by Grammy-nominated pianist Murray Low, the ensemble has emerged as one of the premier academic performing groups of its kind. As prior recipients of a prestigious SiCA (Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts) grant, SALJE has been afforded the opportunity to collaborate with several luminaries in the field of Afro-Latin music that have helped to elevate the ensemble's performance acumen, as well as aid in establishing Stanford as a vital West Coast center for Afro-Latin Jazz.
