The Grammy Award–winning Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble (ALJE) is an octet of virtuosos with roots in Latin jazz traditions trailblazed by greats like Tito Puente and Mario Bauzá.

With a keen ear for the music’s future, the ALJE performs a diverse repertoire that highlights the ensemble’s principal musicians, including one of its newest members, pianist Andrew Andron.

Featuring Moroccan American singer Malika Zarra and composer Akua Dixon with her innovative string quartet Quartette Indigo, this performance is a perfect fit for this outdoor summer concert series, showcasing the sounds and amazing talent of New York City.
