José Fajardo

¡VAYA! 63

 

The son of Cuban “flute king” and legendary bandleader José Fajardo keeps the spirit of his father alive. A percussionist who has played with everyone from Larry Harlow and Orchestra Broadway to El Canario and Tito Puente, Fajardo Jr. has led the band his father started in Cuba in 1949—one of the best charangas around—into a new era of smoking salsa.

 

Opening set by DJ Mar y Sol

 

“HOT Salsa Dura with all the necessary ingredients to make it a dance floor hit. This young man who is the son of Afro Cuban music royalty (José Fajardo) is carving his own place in this genre and I’m sure his dad is looking down at him with a smile." —NewGenSalsa

 

Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab
