Acknowledged as "la crema de la crema of Cuban-Toronto musicians" , the Luis Mario Ochoa Cuban Quartet is renowned for virtuosity, incredible musicianship, and for being a powerhouse of energy. 


They will bring that energy to the Sky Centre on February 15th as part of the “Stars for Saskatchewan” series.
“You can expect to hear the romantic rumba, to the lively samba, the pulsating bolero, and the swaying waltz and cha cha at this show, “ says Swift Current Arts Council President Melanie Friesen. 
Nominee of the 2007 Canadian Latin Jazz Artist of the Year Award, Luis Ochoa and his ensembles have appeared at the Jazz Festivals of Montreal, Halifax, St. John’s, Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, and Ottawa.
The ensemble, directed by the Havana-born Ochoa, is noted by the press for their “fire, finesse and authenticity”  and promises to dazzle the senses with a full range of Musica Cubana that really cooks.
This concert is presented in association with Prairie Debut.
Tickets for the concert are available online for $45 at www.ticketpro.ca or by calling 1-888-655-9090. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door. 
The performance will be held February 15 at 7:30pm at the Sky Centre. For more information see www.scartscouncil.ca.
