This event has passed.

Grammy-nominated Cuban guitarist, composer, and vocalist Juan-Carlos Formell has forged a post-modern identity for AfroCuban music that has been hailed as “musical magic realism.” Part prophet, part poet, Formell is a fourth-generation musician who, in 1993, after touring Mexico as a replacement for a band’s bassist, swam across the Rio Grande to seek political asylum in the United States.
