Musical Performance Presented by: Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra
Please join us as we celebrate the immense musical talent of the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALFO) who will present a special program curated especially for FML! The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) was founded in 2007 by GRAMMY-award winning, pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill. With the support of a group of prominent leaders from the worlds of jazz and Latin culture, O’Farrill launched ALJA to serve as a non-profit organization that could advance both the performance and educational aspects of this uniquely Pan-American art form. The group has reached over one million people worldwide during the pandemic alone! Among other recognitions, the New York Times featured AFLO's virtual programming as one of the "10 Best Quarantine Concerts Online". The ALJA performs, educates about, and preserves the music of all of the Americas, emanating from African and indigenous roots, through the entry point of jazz. ALJA embraces its mission with a commitment to social justice, equity, inclusion, and the equality of all cultures worldwide.
The program will take place on Zoom and we will email you the link, meeting ID and password 24 hours prior to the event.
