Festival of the Arts BOCA

Doors: 6:00 PM, Show: 7:00 PM
Established in 2007, Festival of the Arts BOCA was designed to promote the cultural arts and to enrich the quality of life of the residents of Boca Raton, North Broward and Palm Beach County.
The legacy of Máximo Francisco Repilado Muñoz, known professionally as Compay Segundo, continues to radiate through the musical group that he founded in 1955 and that adopted his name. Currently appearing as the Compay Segundo Group, the musicians that accompanied him in his triumphant tours are fully dedicated to preserving and enriching his contributions to the cultural heritage of Cuba, among which are the invention of a musical instrument called the armónico and the use of clarinets in traditional Cuban music.
