This spring, you’ll definitely want to check out the Kennedy Center’s Yissy & Bandancha show, held under the banner of the Artes de Cuba festival. The show will feature a performance by Havana-based musician and percussionist Yissy Garcia and her band Bandancha. You’ll hear the roots of Garcia’s music, with combines funk, Latin jazz, and electronic styles for an incredible performance. You’ll get a taste of the musical scene in Cuba and Yissy & Bandancha’s music, which brings the vibe of a Havana club late at night. You’ll also get a sense of how uber-digital EDM plays into more traditional jazz and percussion music.
