Great NYTimes review of our CubaNOLA show

Music journalist Jon Pareles gave our Symphony Space CubaNOLA show great review in the New York Times here.
New Orleans second-line beat, shaken and tapped on tambourines, started “CubaNOLA: More Than the Spanish Tinge,” the concert by Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra on Saturday night at Symphony Space. Then a cowbell joined in, tilting the rhythm toward Cuba. It was the prologue to a concert devoted to musical kinships: between Cuba and New Orleans, and between generations.
Thank you very much to the NYTimes!
