2018 Lineup / Latin

Tango Jazz Quartet

Fri, Aug 10 @ 6pm
Heritage Bank Cafe Stritch Stage

Musical genres have long cross-pollinated styles, and Tango Jazz Quartet is a prime example of the enchantment bestowed by cross-cultural mingling. Based in Argentina, the four-piece band mixes its two namesake traditions, as one would hear in their hometown Buenos Aires in the 1940s and ’50s.

Sat, Aug 11 @ 2pm
Sobrato Organization Main Stage

In drummer Yissy García’s Bandancha, trumpet and acoustic percussion meet keyboards, bass guitar and turntables for an exhilarating fusion. While the Bandancha sound is rooted in the bandleader’s native Cuba’s indigenous, African and jazz traditions, it expands to R&B, funk and electronic music while held together by dynamic virtuosic performances.
