Elio Villafranca: On Any Given Night In Havana featuring Claudia Acuna

Cuban pianist and composer Elio Villafranca is an audience favorite at Jazz at Lincoln Center known for conceptually ambitious projects that fuse Western jazz with a cross-continental array of influences. In On Any Given Night in Havana, he explores the music of the 1940–50s Descargas, led by legendary artists like Cachao, Frank Emilio, and Pedro “Peruchín” Justiz. Villafranca will utilize his vast knowledge of Latin rhythms and percussion traditions to celebrate this period which revolutionized the role of the congas in Cuban music. The project’s special guest vocalist is Claudia Acuña, a renowned multilingual musician and regular Jazz at Lincoln Center headliner. Villafranca is often featured in The Appel Room, one of our larger venues, so make sure to check him out in our most intimate room: Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola.
