Elio Villafranca

When: Sun., Feb. 16, 7 p.m. 2020

Cuban-born pianist Elio Villafranca celebrates his home country and its enduring musical sound on his latest work, On Any Given Night in Havana. From cha-cha-chá to guaracha, the sounds of Havana’s famous Tropicana Club, which thrived in the mid-20th century, come alive. The composer also recently released Cinque. The album is a five-movement suite inspired by the actions of Joseph Cinqué, the African slave who inspired the revolt on the Amistad. Villafranca performs on Sunday, February 16, at the Double E Performance Center’s T-Rex Theater in Essex Junction.

Price: $22-55
