Multi-GRAMMY Award-winning composer/pianist/educator Arturo O’Farrill and the non-profit The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance announce the kick-off to their 18th anniversary live performance season with an unprecedented program of progressive artists banding together for change: Songs of Love & Resistance. Presented in cooperation with Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture in the Heart of the Bronx, O’Farrill and his 18-piece Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra perform alongside many of today’s revolutionary musicians including Ana Tijoux (Chile) and Telmary Diaz (Cuba) as well as the Bronx’s own Caridad de la Luz “La Bruja,” DJ Logic, Rebel Diaz, and Christopher “Chilo” Cajigas. Songs of Love & Resistance is set for Saturday, November 2 at 8 p.m.

Songs of Love & Resistance features art forms that range from song, spoken word, poetry, and rap. O’Farrill returns to the Bronx’s mainstay performing arts center Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture for the third official presentation at the venue of his renowned Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra. On November 2, O’Farrill premieres a new composition along with riveting performances of his latest arrangements for singular works from an acclaimed repertoire and big band renditions of original songs from each special guest artist.
