Thank you, San Francisco, and to everyone who came out to see our sold-out show at Yoshi’s. Grammy award winning Arturo O’Farrill oversaw a dazzling recreation of Mazeltov, Mis Amigos, the 1961 album we unearthed and re-released last year. The gig rocked. Larry Harlow, “El Judio Maravilloso”, jousted with The Sway Machinery’s Jeremiah Lockwood. Ozomatli’s Wil-Dog killed the crowd with his version of “Caballito”, and Ceci Bastida and Ethan Miller harmonized in Yiddish for the very first time — as if they had spoken the language their whole lives. More to come in terms of this concert. The photos below are just a taste. But we are indebted to Arturo and the Koret Foundation for making this night possible. It was epic.
