UM Maurice Gusman Concert Hall
Musical Tribute to Desi Arnaz
Latin Roots is Lucie Arnaz‘s fiery, explosive, and heartfelt musical tribute to the rhythm of her roots and a love note to the man who introduced La Conga to the United States, her father, Desi Arnaz. An eclectic Latin American mix in English and Spanish highlighting songs from Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and Johnny Mercer alongside tunes by Agustín Lara, Rafael Hernandez, and Margarita Lecuona, Latin Roots sizzles with sophistication and sassy spice. Led by renowned musical director and Broadway composer Ron Abel, this show is the very subtle throb of the Latin rhythm itself. It culminates with ASCAP’S Michael Kerker and Lucie Arnaz discussing the inspiration and creation of this Latin labor of love.
Presented in collaboration with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP)
