Drummer, composer, bandleader and MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellow Dafnis Prieto has been making waves on the international scene since his arrival in the US in the late 1990s. A native of Cuba, Prieto weaves styles from Latin America and Jazz into a fresh sound that sparkles with energy and excitement. This performance will feature music from Prieto’s acclaimed CD Back to the Sunset, a tour de force for jazz orchestra that showcases the strength and power of the big band while pointing to a world of new possibilities.
