The return of the salsa superstar. One of the top salseros of all time is back on stage, with all the force and wisdom that years of performing, recording, acting, and activism have lent him. Unafraid to bring politics to the party, Blades' songs take cues from the thoughtful new songwriting movements of Cuba and Latin America, raising the bar for salsa lyrics without sacrificing a moment of dance-worthy intensity. With a band that just won't quit, Blades promises to remind everyone why he has long been one of Latin music's most revered trailblazers, spokespeople, and music makers.

Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
