A Global Piano and Literary Salon: The Soul of Cuba

In Collaboration with PianoCulture.com and PEN World Voices Festival

Thursday October 21 2010 • 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Chuchito Valdés

Overview

Oscar Hijuelos (Columbia.edu)
Raised in Havana, Jesus “Chuchito” Valdés has inherited more than his father’s famous name; he displays the hell-bent intensity and daredevil technique of the elder Valdes-qualities recognized worldwide as hallmarks of Cuban Jazz.
—Neil Tesser, author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz

Oscar Hijuelos forces the Hispanic immigrant experience close to the center of our cultural consciousness, where it very much deserves to be.
—The National Review

A Global Piano and Literary Salon is highlighting artists and intellectuals from Cuba, China, Russia and India. Have you visited any of those countries? If so, we’d love to see your travel photos!
