Live Afro-Cuban music by Jesus Diaz y Su QBA, drinks and Latin cuisine from Guava Tree Cafe.

The NHCC’s new summer music and dance series in the Center’s enchanting Fountain Courtyard presents this season’s last concert, in partnership with Melaza Music. Spend a final evening with us -- Friday instead of Sunday this time -- enjoying live music, drinks, and the delicious Latin cuisine of Nob Hill’s Guava Tree Cafe. We have invited some of our musician friends, from the local community and outside, for lively summer get-togethers right next to the beautiful Rio Grande Bosque.

Cuban-born percussionist, arranger, vocalist, and educator Jesús Díaz, a resident of the Bay Area since 1980, is now one of the most in-demand performers and studio musicians worldwide. A key member of many of the region’s leading Latin ensembles, he has performed with artists including Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, and Celia Cruz. His 10-piece orchestra Jesús Díaz y Su QBA, founded in 1998, has performed at numerous festivals as well as corporate and private events, with a repertoire of original compositions based on traditional Afro-Cuban music with influences of funk and jazz—the new Cuban dance music known as timba.
