About the Program
Grab your dancing shoes for this spirited Skirball Stages performance! Cuban-born musician Yosmel Montejo, fresh from the release of his first album, Red Suitcase, delights from the Skirball's Ahmanson Hall with his band of accomplished Latin jazz musicians.
Then, joining from his home in Montreal, Canada, is Vox Sambou. A native Haitian, Sambou incorporates traditional rhythms of Haiti with afrobeat, jazz, reggae, and hip-hop. Together, Montejo and Sambou take us on a trip through the intoxicating beats of the Caribbean.
Can’t make the streaming event? No worries! Skirball Stages: Yosmel Montejo and Vox Sambou will be available to view on the Skirball’s YouTube channel following the premiere date.
Make it dinner and a show! Before settling in for showtime, swing by the Skirball campus to pick up a sumptuous meal prepared by the Skirball’s culinary experts. Check back soon for the May 1 prix-fixe menu.
