Earlier this Summer, a group of students, parents and supporting staff of the Fat Afro Latin Jazz Cats went on their first-ever trip to Havana, Cuba, after being invited to participate in an international youth jazz band exchange event.

Following their arrival in Havana, they observed and participated on several rehearsals and performances of different groups, took individual and group classes with renowned Cuban instructors, and ended with a live performance at Havana’s Teatro de Bellas Artes.
