Afro-Cu-Bar -- ¡Descarga II!"

An explosion of Latin Jazz featuring more than 50 musicians will interpret the polyrhythmical elements of Cuban music intertwined with the harmonics of Jazz.

Scheduled to appear are: Pillory Noble, John Benitez, Greg Hutchinson, Jay Collins, Ben Lapidus, Jason Lindner, and Dafnis Prieto alongside veterans John Santos, Mark Levine, Harvie S., Larry Harlow, Mark Weinstein, Sonny Bravo and many more..

Organized by Mappy Torres, New York based poet, cultural activist and musical producer, the evening is one of numerous events the Cuban born Torres has organized. ¡Maestros, a descargar!", which translates to "Maestros let's jam!" began in January of 2001, when nearly 50 musicians gathered on a cold winter's evening, during the International Jazz Educators Conference (IAJE) in New York City.

The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
