08/16/2019 - Music: Changüí Majadero
Playing Cuban roots music out of Los Angeles CA, Changüí Majadero is a blazing five-piece band that has honed a deeply informed and highly personal take on changüí, a surging Afro-Cuban musical tradition that took shape in the late 19th century on the eastern side of the island around Guantanamo. It's one of the foundational styles that gave birth to son, salsa and timba, and in the hands of Changüí Majadero the music feels as fresh and intoxicating as a stiff shot of rum. Founded by guitarist/vocalist Gabriel García, an expert on Cuban tres guitar, the band brings Cuba's rural countryside music to new ears! Having played in such disparate settings such as Lincoln Center, SF Jazz, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and even Dodger Stadium, the band released their self-titled debut recording in 2016 that encompasses compositions bristling with propulsive rhythms and evocative vocals — a celebrated release that All About Jazz called "joyous music, deserving greater recognition."

Join us at the Center for our new summer series: Hidden City Sounds! This brand new summer music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday from June 7 to October 4! Enjoy a different genre of live music each week along with DJ's, food trucks, inflatables, and a cash bar. See the full schedule here.
