Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture Presents: Josean Jacobo
Josean Jacobo – Premiere Performance – June 25, 2021 – 7:30 pm

Josean Jacobo is one of the most important jazz musicians in the Dominican Republic.  He is a pianist, composer and arranger.  In his debut album “Setting Things in Order”, Josean Jacobo and his group blend Latin and Afro-Dominican Fusions (rhythms such as Merengue, Pambiche, Palos, Gaga, Sarandunga, Machacó), with other sounds within the jazz avant-garde.  Committed to the music of the Dominican Republic, Josean Jacobo is successfully coloring jazz with his culture. Hailed as the Ambassador of Afro-Dominican Jazz, Josean Jacobo is proud to introduce audiences to his collection of enriched and innovative music that greatly contribute to the universal language of jazz.
