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

La Plaza @ ALJA Digital Village | Falafel, Freilach & Frijoles: From Mambo to Borscht – Encore

Originally performed and recorded live November 1 & 2, 2012, at Symphony Space, NYC as part of the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance Performance Series.

Falafel, Freilach, and Frijoles: From Mambo to Borscht examines the deep, long-standing relationship between the Latino and Jewish communities. The relationship between Jewish culture and Latin music dates back to Iberia prior to the Spanish Inquisition and continued to pre-Castro Cuba - an era when Jewish families would visit the island and its nightclubs. In the decades to follow, resorts flourished in the Catskills, and the Jewish community flocked to the “Borscht Belt” to dance to bands led by Tito Puente, Joe Cuba, and Eddie Palmieri, among others. The burgeoning scene attracted musicians and fans alike and has been described as a “mecca for Latin music,” resulting in the mambo being called “the Jewish waltz.” The ALJO also explores the themes common to the larger Jewish and Latino communities, including a journey to the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and North Africa.

We had the great pleasure of presenting Brazilian musicians, Letieres Leite & Orkestra Rumpilezz in concert back in 2015. Collaborating with WRTI & Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, we participated in the band's first US tour. The performance took place at Temple Performing Arts Center at Temple University. It was a magical night. What Letieres Leite had developed with his Orkestra is a historic and revolutionary approach to the interplay between African, Afro-Brazilian and European ideas of rhythm, harmony and melody. It's hard to explain it. You have to see it, hear it, feel it to comprehend. We have all lost a brilliant artist, leader, visionary and teacher. Letieres Leite will be missed, but his music lives on. Rest In Power. Check out Letieres Leite & Orkestra Rumpilezz in action: https://youtu.be/dYHEBAWv7SI #PhillyJazz #LetieresLeite #OrkestraRumpilezz #Rumpilezz #Brazil #AfroBrazilian #RIP #AfricanMusic #AfroBrazilianMusic #AfroBrazilianJazz
