Titans of Latin music burn through two sets of spontaneous improvisation based on Cuban forms, led by Oakland-born & raised, NYC-based percussionist Annette A. Aguilar.

Aguilar is the founder of the annual Women in Latin Jazz Festival in New York, and is also a Latin Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department. She leads Latin / Brazilian Jazz band Annette A. Aguilar & StringBeans, and is a former percussionist with The Grateful Dead.

The group’s versatility, its clever approach of dealing with contrasts and its full sound make it a group to take into account internationally.
