The AC (Afro Cuban) Jazz Project features, "Grammy Award Winning Heavy Weights" who have performed and toured alongside some of the greatest bandleaders and groups from Cuba and the United States; Chucho Valdes, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Hernan Lopez Nussa, Poncho Sanchez, and more. Their sound is nothing like you have ever heard before. The music is pure, progressive, uplifting, energetic and full of life! You can either kick back and enjoy the hip melodic sounds, or get up and dance to the intense Afro Cuban rhythms!
