Don’t miss this rare free concert by Orquesta La Moderna Tradicion as part of the American Sabor Exhibition at the San Francisco Public Library and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
The San Francisco-based Orquesta La Moderna Tradición has thrilled audiences across the country with a mix of contemporary timba-infused arrangements of Danzón music. Danzón still remains one of the most important musical styles in Cuba, and it was the music of choice at the Havana social clubs of the 1950s.
