Hot off its third Grammy nomination, and the release of its newest album, My Secret Radio, the Cuban music group Tiempo Libre and the Austin Symphony Orchestra will celebrate Cuba’s musical heritage with a joyous dance-inducing symphonic concert in Dell Hall on Friday, October 21st, 2011 at 8:00PM.
Tiempo Libre and the Austin Symphony will perform a medley of traditional cha-cha-chás, sones (including “El Manicero”, “Son de la Loma” and “Guantanamera”) arranged by Tiempo Libre’s Jorge Gomez in collaboration with Raul Murciano (a professor at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music and one of the founders/music director of Miami Sound Machine) as well as selections from Tiempo Libre’s Grammy nominated album Bach in Havana, which uniquely fuses Cuban music and Bach and was featured on Dancing with the Stars.
Tiempo Libre will also perform some high energy, dance-inducing Grammy-nominated timba music on its own featuring songs from My Secret Radio, as well as selections from their three previously Grammy-nominated timba albums Bach in Havana, Lo Que Esperabas and Arroz Con Mango.
