Lalo Davila to perform at JSCC

Feb 26th, 2018

The irrepressible sounds of Latin music are returning to Jackson State Community College. Lalo Davila and his ensemble will perform in the college's Ayers Auditorium on Thursday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.

Lalo and his ensemble thrilled attendees with his high-energy performance last year at Jackson State. In conjunction with the international studies program of JSCC, Lalo will conduct a master class for the students earlier that day.

Lalo Davila and his 10-piece Latin ensemble will perform musical selections in the Afro-Cuban genre. The concert will consist of music by Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, and Bruno Mars. Everyone will be invited to sing along and dance to the vibrant sounds of Lalo Davila and Friends Salsa Band.

Lalo has extensive experience both as an educator, composer, author, and performer. Lalo was named Nashville's Top Five 1998 Percussionist of the Year Award and "Nashville Scene's" 2012 Best Latin Jazz Musician.
