Led by drummer Brian Andres, the Afro-Cuban Jazz Cartel (ACJC) was formed to contribute its own mark to the San Francisco Bay Area’s history of Latin jazz. Featuring Grammy Award-winning musicians and esteemed music educators, the ACJC never fails to perform its music at the highest level. The repertoire consists of original compositions as well as exciting arrangements of classics from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the United States. The group is equally capable of performing a dance or concert repertoire, as well as educational presentations such as lectures, workshops, or instruction focused on the musical instrumentation, composition, arrangement, or cultural significance and history of the music they perform.
