Few pianists can say they’ve performed with the likes of Tito Puente or served as Paul Simon’s musical director. Far fewer can boast they’ve written the theme song to the hit HBO show Sex in the City. The legendary Oscar Hernandez has done all that and much more. With Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Hernandez has assembled 13 of the world’s best salsa players – an exclusive “who’s who” of instrumentalists. And their reputation – for phenomenal musicianship and an uncanny ability to get any audience dancing – naturally precedes them. They can make anywhere in the world feel like El Barrio, and for one night, that special place is downtown Atlanta.
