Upcoming Events & News

  • August 23,24,25,26,27,28 at BIRD’S BASEMENT – Melbourne, Australia. Arturo and the stunning Afro LatinJazz Ensemble – flying in from New York City on Bird’s own wings – perform all week to wrap up this great club’s Latin Jazz Month. If you’re in Melbourne, you don’t want to miss this electrifying Ensemble.
  • We’ve recorded Arturo’s concert at Harlem’s world-famous Apollo Theatre with Arturo and the Band plus special guest orator/performer Dr Cornel West. Please click here to see about the album. It’s an important project:

    “How shall Integrity face Oppression? What shall Honesty do in the face of Deception, Decency in the face of Insult, Self-Defense before Blows?  What shall Virtue do to meet Brute Force?”  “The Cornel West Concerto” is a tour-de-force musical and oratorical plea for justice, love, and respect… with text by Dr. Cornel West and music by Grammy-winner Arturo O’Farrill – based on questions proposed by W.E.B. Dubois at the turn of the 20th Century – questions as relevant today (if not more so) as they were then.

    This is genuinely powerful music. These are truly important ideas. Dr. West’s inspiring performance with Arturo and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra will send chills through you, bring tears to your eyes, and joy to your heart.
