Icons of Cuban son with more than seven decades and three generations of history make their long overdue U.S. debut. Founded by the legendary Arsenio Rodríguez, the classic reed and brass-fueled Conjunto has been led by the Chappottín dynasty since Rodríguez left Cuba for New York in 1950. Tonight, these stars finally follow suit, bringing their vintage Cuban sound.

As this is a dance event, there is no seating.
