A sonera of the classic Cuban style and a priestess of the Yorùbán diaspora, Gladys “Bobi” Céspedes has been at the forefront of representing and promoting Cuban music in the Bay Area and the United States for over 40 years.
Joining Bobi Céspedes on the bill is one of the Bay Area’s most inventive Cuban bands Pellejo Seco, which draws on Afro-Cuban folklore and the latest Havana dance music, Latin jazz and flamenco, bossa nova and jazz/rock fusion.
A portion of the theater will be cleared for a dance floor, so come ready to groove to the sounds of Afro-Cuba and beyond!
