Asere! Musicians and Dancers of the Havana Cuba All-Stars

Event Navigation

A spirited spectacle of song and dance, exemplifying Cuba’s greatest musical traditions, the Havana Cuba All-Stars are dedicated to the promotion of Cuban music through a fresh, contemporary lens. The All-Stars showcase a wide variety of Cuban beats from the cha cha to the rumba, from “Son Cubano” style to the salsa.

In their “Asere”—or “Friendship”—tour, the All-Stars are backed by three of Cuba’s finest dancing couples. Featuring Banda Asere and some of the greatest dancers and musicians of Cuba working in tandem, the American encore of the Havana Cuba All-Stars’ tour is not to be missed!

Times-Enterprise describes The Havana Cuba All-Stars live concert experience as a performance where “toes were tapping, hands were clapping and hardly an audience member could find the discipline to sit still as delightful, fun and infectious rhythms took effect.”
