Gabriel Navia & Sulkary emanate an intimate and very high energy level of Latin passion and soul in their music.
Gabriel Navia is a Latin Grammy nominated guitarist, composer and producer, and Sulkary Valverde one of the greatest new voices of Cuba.
Both artists have toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and South America and have recorded and shared stages with the San Francisco Symphony, Santana, Steve Miller, Chuchito Valdes, Buena Vista Social Club, Eliades Ochoa, Havana D’ Primera, Eddy Navia, Sukay, Savia Andina, Los Kjarkas and more.
The notable First Friday Fiesta Series at MACLA brings several of the Bay Area’s most prominent Latin American music and dance companies to MACLA’s Castellano Playhouse in the heart of Downtown San José for an evening of free, educational, and engaging performances.
The series is presented by MACLA during the monthly SoFA District Art Walk.
