NJPAC Presents:


Papo Ortega’s


Also performing:

The Cultural Explosion Dance Company, and DJ Jose Rodriguez


Back for the 2nd year, CubanoSon performs at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. This year CubanoSon headlines at the Victoria Theatre for a night of music and dancing at this special event that kicks off a weekend of the sizzling sounds of Latin jazz at NJPAC, New Jersey’s premiere Performing Arts Center. The evening will feature live music courtesy of CubanoSon, a traditional Cuban dance orchestra created by pianist Leonel “Papo” Ortega, which unites the Punto Cubano and the Son Montuno into a decidedly danceable mix. This high-energy evening will also welcome the sounds of DJ Jose Rodriguez, and the smooth moves of Cultural Explosion Dance Company, New Jersey’s largest Latin dance company.


The New Jersey Performing Arts Center held its world premiere on October 18, 1997. After a decade of planning and a $187 million capital campaign, the last great performing arts center to open in the 20th century debuted to great fanfare and acclaim. Since that time, more than 3.5 million people have visited NJPAC to see the world's greatest performers and New Jersey's top talent.
