The great Cuban pianist and composer Jesus "Chucho" Valdes presents the world premiere of La Creacion (The Creation), which explores the story of creation according to the Regla de Ocha, the Afro-Cuban religion known as Santeria. The piece includes elements of Santeria ritual music, African music, the blues and what Valdes describes as "an atmosphere in the style of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew." In partnership with the Frost School's Henry Mancini Institute Big Band.
