Havana Cuba All-Stars Play Hodgson Hall Wednesday On First U.S. Tour

This Wednesday, Athens residents will have the opportunity to experience some of the best music Cuba has to offer.

The recent lifting of the U.S. travel ban has ushered in a new era in American-Cuban relations. The Havana Cuba All-Stars are celebrating this development by touring the U.S. and Canada for the first time.

True to the group’s name, the Havana Cuba All-Stars portray and promote the musical legacy of their home country. With a combination of voice, steel guitar, bongos, violin and a slew of other instruments, the group exemplifies the traditional sounds of a nation once muffled.

Composed of some of Cuba’s most prominent players, the band is sure to send audience members on a journey to our Southern neighbor.

The Havana Cuba All-Stars play Hodgson Concert Hall Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $26–41 and available here.
