Correspondence: Kenya Revisited

Kenya.jpgI would like to let you know about a concert to take place at New York’s Manhattan School of Music. On April 1 Bobby Sanabria, the MSM Afro-Cuban Jazz orchestra and Candido Camero will be giving the first-ever live performance of Machito & The Afro-Cubans Kenya. Bobby has recreated this historic recording that was made fifty years ago in New York City.

For an interesting account of the history of Kenya and Sanabria’s preparation for the concert, see Marc Myers’ JazzWax. For details about the free concert, go to the Manhattan School web site.
