The Jesus Cutino Band presents Havana Jam
Saturday, July 27 2019, 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
In 1979, as the American and Cuban governments tried to ease diplomatic pressure between the two countries, the Columbia and Fania record labels co-sponsored Havana Jam, a three-day music festival with the sole purpose of putting music before politics.
As well as headline performances from Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius, Fania All-Stars and Billy Joel, the festival featured a staggering line up of Cuban artists including Irakere, Pacho Alonso, Orquesta de Santiago de Cuba, Juan Pablo Torres and more.
An acclaimed guitarist, Jesus moved to London from Havana in 1998 and quickly found himself at the heart of a vibrant Latin musical movement. He joined Ska Cubano in 2004 and has performed on major festival stages across the world.
The passion for the music of his native island still burns as strongly as ever and Jesus leads his nine-piece band from the front as they deliver stunning authenticity and musical vitality.
