“[Preservation Hall’s] Ben Jaffe is an evangelist for the music’s ability to bridge colors and cultures.”
The New York Times

Holding the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, Preservation Hall Jazz Band finds its classic sound invigorated by the band’s life-changing journey through Cuba, an island integral to the evolution of jazz and New Orleans culture. The iconic septet – in collaboration with acclaimed Cuban singer Yusa – will deliver an immersive concert experience drawing on music from their recent album, So It Is, and cinematic visuals from the new documentary A Tuba to Cuba. Discover the musical links between the Big Easy and Havana in an uplifting evening that brings the sounds of New Orleans jazz together with the rhythm and soul at the heart of Cuban music.
