Now On Tour!


Juan de Marcos & The Afro-Cuban All-Stars

38 U.S. City Concert Tour

February - April 2009


“A secret satellite. A flying piano. A Cuban maestro who combines the musical sixth sense of Quincy Jones with the international savvy of James Bond. These are the stories behind the U.S. return of Cuban music after half a decade, thanks to the Juan de Marcos & The Afro-Cuban All-Stars national tour, which is bringing  Cuba’s unique, addictive sounds to 38 cities including Berkeley, Chicago, Cincinnati , Dallas, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, New York , Seattle, Tampa, and Washington, among dozens in between.


The man behind the Buena Vista Social Club, Cuban bandleader, producer, and impresario extraordinaire Juan de Marcos, has been forced to lay low on the American circuit since 2002, when politics slammed the door in the face of some of Latin music’s most adored artists. “We used to perform in the U.S. every year starting in 1994, when I went for the first time with my group, Sierra Maestra. We toured the whole country. Then musicians from Buena Vista started to tour, with great success and their own bands we put together, for many years. But in 2003, everything stopped.” - Rock Paper Scissors
