Tiempo Libre is one of the hottest Latin bands today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs, festival stages and dance venues, Tiempo Libre is celebrated for its tropical music featuring an irresistible, exhilarating mix of jazz harmonies, contemporary sonorities, and seductive Latin rhythms. Throughout the past 14 years, the band has appeared around the globe and has been featured on television shows including “The Tonight Show,” “Live from Lincoln Center,” and “Dancing with the Stars” as well as many entertainment programs on Univision and Telemundo. Since the group’s formation in Miami 2001, its members have been on a mission to share their Afro-Caribbean heritage with as wide an audience as possible, reinterpreting and reinvigorating music born from the meeting of their musical origins with their new American experience.
Individual tickets are $20 for adults ($25 at door) and $10 for students.
