DAFNIS PRIETO SEXTET IN CONCERT
Global Cuba Fest is thrilled to present the magic of Dafnis Prieto and his sextet, performing live songs from his newest album, TRANSPARENCY.
As the follow-up to his GRAMMY-winning big band album, BACK TO THE SUNSET, which DownBeat called “one of the best recordings of the year, ”Cuban-born drummer, composer, educator, and 2011 MacArthur Genius Fellow Dafnis Prieto returns with his latest project.
TRANSPARENCY, from Dafnis Prieto Sextet, was released last October 2020 on Prieto’s independent music label, Dafnison Music. Prieto’s fearless Sextet features a top-shelf lineup.
