Live broadcast by Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra


Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra are scheduled to perform live on Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 4:00 p.m., filmed from the stage at Columbia University’s Miller Theater.

In 2019, Columbia University launched the Year of Water, an interdisciplinary investigation of water in all of its social, political, cultural, economic and environmental complexities. As part of this initiative, the School of the Arts commissioned composer, musician and seven-time GRAMMY Award winner Arturo O’Farrill to write a new work entitled “Mundoagua”. O’Farrill will present the world premiere of “Mundoagua” as well as another work by O’Farrill, Gulab Jamón, both performed by the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra.
