JZ Festival in Beijing OCHÚN: Time Travel with Cuban Music
The band Ochun plays a combination of traditional Cuban music and original compositions that have kept New York City dancing for over ten years. The band has just released its fourth album, “Guarachando”, and has made it on the ballot for the Grammies for a third time. With original compositions by the band’s singers Miguel Garcia, Pablo Moya, and Yuniel Jimenez, Ochun traverses the great spectrum of Cuban music with great respect for the past and one eye on the future. With driving rhythms, powerful brass, and complex arrangements, Ochun has become a true force on the Cuban music scene.
