Program Description:

Jazz simply isn’t Jazz without the scope of Pan Latin influence that shaped and sustained it.

Featuring award winning contemporary musicians, authors and advocates of Pan-Latin music, Los Olvidados (The Forgotten Ones) explores how Latin based musical traditions continue to deal with a legacy of indifference, while remaining at the forefront of musicality transforming the quintessential nature of Jazz.

Jane Bunnett, Dr. Martha Gonzalez, Dr. Benjamin Lapidus, Yilian Cañizares, Arturo O’Farrill, Michele Rosewoman, Bobby Sanabria, John Santos, Dr. Chris Washburne and Miguel Zenón share inspiration they’ve cultivated as musicians, educators, authors advocates and activists within Pan-Latin Jazz.
