Treasured Bay Area singer Bobi Céspedes is a sonera of the classic Cuban style and for this performance, filmed in June 2019, she presented the world premiere of a selection of brand new songs joined by guest percussionist John Santos. Céspedes founded the influential Bay Area Cuban ensemble Conjunto Céspedes in 1981 with her brother Luis and nephew Guillermo, sharing the stage with salsa titans Tito Puenté, Rubén Blades and Celia Cruz. The singer worked with Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart’s Planet Drum project beginning in 1998, recording two albums and touring the world with his ensemble that also featuring SFJAZZ Education Director Rebeca Mauleón. Her long-awaited debut album, Rezos, was released in 2003, and this performance celebrates her new material and her quarter-century collaboration with Santos.
