Join the Stanford Afro-Latin Jazz Ensemble for Buscando América (looking for America), a special evening of music which delves deeper into the connections between the music of Latin and North America.

The concert features repertoire and musical arrangements which serve to illustrate the rich relationships between the two idioms — far beyond the basic mixing of the rhythms of Latin America with the harmonies of Jazz.

The result is an exciting blend of sounds that is guaranteed to perk up your ears and maybe get you moving out of your seat!

Established in 2008 by Grammy-nominated pianist Murray Low, the ensemble has emerged as one of the premier academic performing groups of its kind. As prior recipients of a prestigious SiCA (Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts) grant, SALJE has been afforded the opportunity to collaborate with several luminaries in the field of Afro-Latin music that have helped to elevate the ensemble’s performance acumen, as well as aid in establishing Stanford as a vital West Coast center for Afro-Latin Jazz.
