This is the first Maqueque show in Toronto in more than 3 years. Starting out as a project to support excellent young Cuban female players and composers, this dynamic cooperative has become one of the top jazz groups touring today, according to Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll.
Multiple tours in the US, Europe and Juno wins -and a Grammy Nomination- have propelled Maqueque to one of the top tier jazz bands playing today. YOU MUST SEE THEM LIVE!
