Joining O’Farrill will be special guests, including guitarist Lionel Loueke (described by O'Farrill as "the greatest guitarist on the planet" and by Herbie Hancock as "a musical painter"), singer-songwriter Wunmi, guitarist Bryan Vargas, vocalist and percussionist Tosin and members of the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble
