Museum of the African Diaspora, SFJAZZ and Yerba Buena Gardens Festival present a Six-Week Lecture Series with John Santos

ROOTS OF SALSA: UNSUNG HEROES

For every Celia Cruz, Mongo Santamaría, and Tito Puente, there are scores of musicians, composers, and arrangers whose names fall between the cracks; warriors who dedicated their lives to the art, lifting the bar, lifting their communities, and leaving a treasure of memories, lessons, and documentation. Their contributions to the legacy of Afro-Caribbean culture as a living history and philosophy are as priceless as they are unrecognized. They are the unsung heroes.
