Arturo O’Farrill—leader of the “first family of
Afro-Cuban Jazz” (New York Times)—brings his three-time Grammy®-winning Afro Latin Jazz
Orchestra to the Kennedy Center for a groundbreaking collaboration with preeminent
philosopher, scholar, and civil rights activist Dr. Cornel West.
Dr. West often famously remarks, “I’m a Bluesman in the life of the mind, and a jazzman in
the world of ideas.” That spirit carries through in this sonic exploration of arts, politics,
progress, and how uncertainty and improvisation often come hand-in-hand with hope.
