Posted May 21, 2003 by publisher in Cuba Culture.

Havana.- Afro Cuban All Stars, musician Juan de Marcos González and Cuban singer Pedrito Calvo performed in Los Angeles, the United States.
According to specialized critics, the band gave one of the best concerts staged at the auditorium of the University of California this year.

Ignacio “Mazacote” Carrillo, a prominent Cuban artist, showed his excellent physical condition while dancing with a young dancer the song “El canallon”, somehow replacing Manuel “Puntillita” Licea, who died a few months ago.

The 17-strong band played “son” and “bolero” and delighted the audience with excellent trombone, trumpet and saxophone solos.

For his part, Pedrito Calvo, a former member of Los Van Van orchestra, gave a singular touch to the performance, and received a standing ovation from the audience.
