Join some of Chicago's most talented Cuban musicians for an evening of music and memories of home. Inspired by Eduardo Machado's The Cook, panelists will address the ways in which displaced people maintain their cultural identity and stay connected to their homeland.

The discussion will be led by Maria de los Angeles Torres, Director of Latin American and Latino Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Other panelists and musicians include: Carlos Equis-Aquila, member of Comparsa Jardinera, Tercio Moderno, Los Principales and percussion leader of the Orchestra of the Americas and KUBA!; Angel D'Cuba, lead singer of Angel D'Cuba in the Solar System; Victor Miranda, celebrated Cuban violinist/guitarist; and Hector Silveira, lead member of Hector Silveira y Su Orquestra.
