From Brooklyn Bridge Park + AfroLatin Jazz Alliance:
St. Ann’s Warehouse presents a free concert, Fandango at the Wall, this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Pier 1. With the Statue of Liberty as its backdrop, 30 musicians from the U.S., Mexico and beyond will reunite to celebrate a lush blend of jazz big-band and the 300-year old Son Jarocho sound of Mexico. Fandango at the Wall has its roots in a cross-border Fandango, or jam session, that has been performed annually on both sides of the Tijuana/San Diego border wall since 2008.
Performers will include:
Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra
Conga Patria Son Jarocho Collective: Patricio Hidalgo, Ramon Guitierrez, Tacho Utrera, Wendy Cao Romero, Fernando Guadarrama, and Jorge Francisco Castillo
Mexican trio The Villalobos Brothers
Grammy-nominated American jazz violinist Regina Carter
American cellist and composer Akua Dixon
Iraqi-American oud virtuoso Rahim Alhaj
Iranian-born tar and setar player Sahba Motalebbi
July 9, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., Pier 1, Harbor View Lawn, rain or shine. For more information and to register for free tickets, visit this link.
