Afro Latin Jazz Alliance

Afro Latin Jazz Alliance ALJA is dedicated to preserving the music and heritage of big band Latin Jazz through performance and education. The non-profit Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) was established by Arturo O'Farrill in 2007 to promote Afro Latin Jazz through a comprehensive array of performances, educational programs, recordings and international cultural diplomacy initiatives.

ALJA serves as the institutional home of the GRAMMY winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra established in 2002, and self produces the Orchestra's annual performance season at Symphony Space (2007 - 2014), and maintains a weekly engagement for the Orchestra at the famed jazz club Birdland. Arturo O'Farrill's debut album with the Orchestra, Una Noche Inolvidable, earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination in 2006 and the Orchestra's second album, Song for Chico, (ZOHO) earned a GRAMMY® Award for "Best Latin Jazz Album" in 2009. In February 2011, Mr. O'Farrill and the ALJO released their third GRAMMY® nominated album, 40 Acres and a Burro (ZOHO). In 2011, O'Farrill released his first solo album, The Noguchi Sessions, (ZOHO). On May 6, 2014, O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra released their latest album, The Offense of the Drum, on Motéma Music, which is nominated for a GRAMMY® for "Best Latin Jazz Album." Chico O'Farrill Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra's Final Night at Birdland (ZOHO) won the 2014 Latin GRAMMY® Award for "Best Instrumental Album". The Alliance also maintains a world-class collection of Latin Jazz musical scores and recordings. ALJA's education initiatives include the Afro Latin Jazz Academy of Music in-school residency program serving public schools citywide with instrumental and ensemble instruction, and the pre-professional youth orchestra, the Fat Afro Latin Jazz Cats, which prepares the next generation of musicians. The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance is a partner project of the Fund for the City of New York and maintains an administrative office at the Harlem School of the Arts -- The Herb Alpert Center where O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra are currently artists-in-residence.

Mission: The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) is dedicated to preserving the music and heritage of big band Latin jazz, supporting its performance for new audiences, and educating young people in the understanding and performance of this important cultural treasure. The Alliance maintains a world-class collection of Latin jazz musical scores and recordings, provides institutional support for the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and provides education programs for young musicians and new audiences.

Originally presented on September 30 of this year, tonight’s program is presented in partnership with the groundbreaking New Mexico based festival, ¡Globalquerque! Cross Cultural Crossover is the virtual version of this year's festival, featuring four past festival acts – Rahim AlHaj (Iraq), Nation Beat (Brazil/USA), Vivalda Ndula (Angola) and Nohe & Sus Santos (Honduras/New Mexico) collaborating on one another’s songs, deconstructing them and re-presenting them through a cross-cultural lense. This distinctive group of musicians has a strong ALJA connection, as ALJO lead trombonist Mariel Bildsten plays with Nation Beat and Rahim AlHaj is one of the featured guest artists on the Fandango at the Wall project. In between musical segments, two past festival MCs, journalists Catalina Maria Johnson (Beat Latino/NPR) and Mel Minter (Musically Speaking/ABQ The Magazine), will engage in conversation with the artists on the process, collaborations, etc.

"It’s up to us to steer things in a direction of fairness and balance for all people and an unprecedented evolution of musical and artistic expression." - By Doobeedoobeedoo NY's Dawoud Kringle:

🎺 AuxSons analyses the links between jazz and world music : afro jazz, Latin jazz, fusion, free jazz... « Expanding its territories by multiplying shifting zones of exchange and friction at its borders, where styles and genres intermingle to create new hybrids, jazz appears as a privileged space where the composite and syncretic beauty of our globalised humanity comes into its own. » 🎺
