With influences of Caribbean rhythms and jazz, Chuchito Valdés creates an exciting and energetic blend of spicy music that drives audiences wild. This piano master captivates with his sensitivity and drives excitement with his dynamic band.

Born and raised in Havana, Cuba, pianist, composer and arranger Jesus “Chuchito” Valdés, is the third-generation manifestation of a Cuban jazz piano dynasty that includes his father, Chucho Valdés and grandfather, Bebo Valdés.

Adonis Puentes’ rich, soulful voice is the perfect front for his all-acoustic orchestra, layering traditional Cuban rhythms with deep bass lines, jazzy horn arrangements and his melodic guitar. 

Born into a musical family and a life-long artist, Puentes’ 2014 album was nominated for World Music Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. 

We’ll even have a dance floor available so you don’t feel tied to your seat, and you don’t need to speak Spanish to enjoy this show — music and dance are the international languages of joy!
