THE AFRO-CUBAN ALL-STARS (ACAS) is a unique orchestra; devoted to promoting the complete story of Cuban music. With each show the orchestra exposes Cuba’s rich musical history interpreting all of its musical genres. Since their inception, many of the Afro Cuban All Stars’ musicians have become international super stars, including the brilliant performers Ruben Gonzalez, Guillermo Rubalcava, and Manuel «The Guajiro» Mirabal.

The Afro-Cuban All Stars genesis was the early 1990s. Back then, Juan de Marcos was the band leader of a traditional son band, Sierra Maestra. He had always dreamed of creating an album celebrating the classic Cuban sound of the ‘50s. So Juan leveraged the success of Sierra Maestra and convinced his record label, World Circuit to make his dream a reality. He went on to develop the Afro Cuban All Stars concept. Juan de Marcos sought out many great musicians, who are now revered world wide including Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara, Portuondo and Ruben Gonzalez.

With the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Juan de Marcos has developed much more than a musical group, he created an institution. With this formula Juan stretches his creative wings; fusing contemporary, traditional and in essence, the future styles of Cuban music. He fluidly adjusts the orchestra’s line-up of musicians to best reflect the various styles from the past eras featured in their performances. The current line-up of ACAS consists of the finest Cuban expatriate musicians, all alumni of Cuba’s greatest bands. The Afro Cuban All Stars tour is a band constantly telling the story of Cuban music to the rest of the world.
