Dafnis Prieto Big Band

Cuban-born drummer, composer, bandleader and 2011 MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Dafnis Prieto honors his musical heroes and mentors—including Eddie Palmieri, Chico O’Farrill, Michel Camilo, Jane Bunnett, Henry Threadgill, Steve Coleman and others—with his 17-piece orchestra. Showcasing some of the world’s best Latin jazz musicians, Prieto’s compositions mix lush and jubilant melodies with polyrhythms that display a range of musical vocabularies from Latin jazz to classical chamber music.
