It's a Sunday afternoon of lush Latin music with NO COVER. This monthly matinee features the rich sounds of Danzón, full of strings and beautiful melodies, and the national dance of Cuba. In 2015 Charanga Tropical became the first American group ever to perform at the International Danzón Festival in Havana. Come hear the repertoire that brought the band to the 'The Pearl of The Caribbean' Cuba. No cover (!) with rum based drink specials. ¡Qué Rico!

Fall Fiesta CD Release Party

Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403

Celebrating their successful tour to Havana, Cuba last Summer, Charanga Tropical will be hosting a Fall Fiesta CD Release Party to celebrate the release of 'In Cuba'!

'In Cuba' was recorded in the same space where the Buena Vista Social Club was made. The resulting music features a mix of originals and Cuban classics. The CD package includes a 20-page booklet that tells the story of Charanga's landmark tour through vivid photos and liner notes by Dr. Olavo Alén, Cuba's greatest living musicologist.

This is the one show you won't want to miss!
