This year’s invited artists and performers are the Grammy award-winning band Quetzal with a guest performance by longtime collaborator, scholar and musician, Dr. Alex E. Chavez.

The musical ensemble is influenced by an East LA rock soundscape composed of Mexican ranchera, cumbia, salsa, rock, R&B, folk, and fusions of international music.

Past Latin shows:

March 9th: Stanford Latin Jazz ensemble.

Join us for an exciting evening of music from Stanford’s premier performing group of its kind. Salsa, Latin Jazz, Son Montuno, Rumba, Afro-Folklorico, Charanga, and more!

Listen to music from Bamboleo, Gilberto Rosa, Eddie Palmieri, John Santos, Issac Delgado, Cubanismo, and more!

In addition to traditional salsa, modern salsa, and latin jazz, we’ve got a few unique wrinkles – ancient African folkloric elements mixed with contemporary jazz, old school Cuban Charanga, and funky Timba!

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.
