Malpaso Dance Company with Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra

March 7, 2024


Presented in Partnership with Arts Commons & the BD&P World Stage at the Jack Singer Concert Hall.

Described as “exceptional” with dancers who “deliver at the highest level” by the Los Angeles Times and imbued with “precision and fire” by the New York Times, Malpaso Dance Company leads the contemporary dance world from their native Cuba. For this exclusive Canadian engagement, they are joined by the world-renowned Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra under the direction of multi-GRAMMY Award winning composer Arturo O’Farrill. Son of the legendary Latin jazz musician Chico O’Farrill, Arturo has made his mark weaving his Latin roots from Mexico City into the jazz music of his new hometown, New York City.
