Afro-Cuban All Stars

TUES. 2/28 6:30, 8:30 PM. $50-$55. All ages.

Perhaps best known as the musical director of the Buena Vista Social Club album and film, Juan de Marcos Gonzalez has long led the powerhouse group known as the Afro-Cuban All Stars. An all-encompassing Cuban musical institution, the All Stars are a multi-generational group that showcases not only influential veterans, but young talent that looks toward the future of Cuban music. The Dakota continues to be an essential room for intimate shows from esteemed artists that might normally be slotted for larger venues, so they’ll be cozy onstage—and the sound will fill the room.
