Tis' the season to be giving! Join Pellejo Seco as they perform an evening of eclectic musical sounds rooted in Traditional Cuban music to help benefit victims of the recent hurricanes in Cuba. The damage has displaced millions of Cubans, destroying homes, schools, hospitals, factories, and crops. A portion of the proceeds will support the Disarm Education Fund providing urgently needed medical aid to Cuba.

Formed in 2004, Pellejo Seco has caught its own distinct flavor which intertwines progressive Fusion Rock, Latin Pop, Hip-Hop, Blues, Brazilian, Flamenco, Afro-Cuban and Jazz, with the unmistakable sound of Cuban Son. Founded in the East Bay in 2004 by Ivan Camblor, tresero and composer from Havana, Cuba, all of their songs are original compositions. The group has two CD's – their highly successful first CD, Enganchante and their recently released CD, Despierta, a collaboration with Cuban pianist Chuchito Valdés. Both CD's will be available for sale at the performance.

The line-up for this special evening will include: Ivan Camblor, vocals and tres (Cuban Guitar); Livan Montoya, vocals and bass; Mario Silva, trumpet; Osvaldo Carvajal, vocals and percussion; Felix Samuel Perez Diaz, vocals; Sulkary Valverde, vocals.

The Disarm Education Fund has been in existence for over thirty years and has been fighting the devastating effects of immoral and unjust foreign policy as they lend a hand to its innocent victims. They provide vital humanitarian assistance, life-saving medicine, and effective advocacy. Disarm has a strong, unequaled track record of providing urgently needed medical aid to Cuba, and their longstanding partners at hospitals and community clinics throughout Cuba are struggling to assist hurricane victims, working in dangerous rubble without basic, life-saving medicine and equipment.
