Fiesta de Ochun with the Tony Castaneda Latin Jazz Band @ Cardinal Bar
Sep 6 @ 9:00 pm – Sep 7 @ 12:00 am

When African slaves were brought to Cuba and other parts of the Caribbean, they were forced to accept Catholicism. In response, they combined their traditional African beliefs with the religion of their masters, producing a syncretization called “Santeria” that has had lasting effects on Afro-Cuban culture, especially its art and music. This annual tribute to this development showcases Afro-Cuban music performed by the Tony Castañeda Latin Jazz Band, along with the Cardinal’s unique brand of mojitos, daiquiris, and Cuba Libres.
