SOURCE: Published:
Legendary Afro-Cuban percussionist Francisco Aguabella will make his debut at New York's famed SOB's located at 204 Varick Street September 10. This rare event, produced by impresario Charles Carlini, will feature some of New York's leading Latin musicians including Candido Camero, Sonny Bravo, Jimmy Delgado, Ruben Rodriguez and Enrique Fernandez. Sets are at 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm. Tickets purchased in advance are $22 and $25 on day of show. For reservation visit www.sobs.com or call (212) 243-4940.

Widely recognized as a master conguero, a knowledgeable instructor and one of the most inspiring artists of all time, Francisco Aguabella has performed with Tito Puente, Dizzy Gillespie, Machito, Lalo Schifrin, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Carlos Santana, Paul Simon, Cachao and other music giants. He left Cuba in 1954 to perform in the Italian film, Mambo, starring Shelley Winters before emigrating to the United States three years later.

Following a long line of stellar Cuban drummers, including Chano Pozo, Candido and Mongo Santamaria, who made an indelible mark in America, Aguabella's music fuses traditional African and Latin rhythms with jazz and soul to create an electrifying and unforgettable sound.
