Jamboree brings in one of the great legends of bolero, artist and singer Migdalia Hechavarría. An absolute gold standard of the genre, Hechavarría arrives directly from Havana's landmark El Gato Tuerto, where audiences have been delighting in shows for decades. Pure emotion and life, Hechavarria embodies the most passionate and vivid bolero rooted in the Cuban tradition. The writer and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Gabriel Garcia Márquez treasured her voice, stage presense and artistic quality. This queen of the genre, born, like almost all major bolero stars, in Santiago, Cuba, heats up the stage along with special guest for this event, another great Cuban music star: flautist and director of NG La Banda, José Luís Cortés 'El Tosco'.
