Chucho Valdés: Irakere 40

  • Berklee Performance Center 136 Massachusetts Ave Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)

Winner of five Grammy and three Latin Grammy awards, the Cuban pianist, composer and arranger Chucho Valdés is the most influential 
figure in modern Afro-Cuban jazz. Irakere is the 
small, Cuban-style big band that he founded 
40 years ago, still going strong with an explosive mix of jazz, rock, classical, Afro-Cuban and traditional Cuban music. 

   “A pianist of imperial command, possessed of a dazzling, deceptively casual virtuosity.”
—The New York Times
