Afro-Cuban All Stars consists of thirteen of Cuba's hottest musicians, active in leading bands like Orquesta Tropicana, Los Van Van and Sierra Maestra, assembled by band leader Juan de Marcos González - the man behind the Buena Vista Social Club.

He has long been honored in Latin America and Europe as the founding member of Cuba's major son-revival band Sierra Maestra, but was noted primarily in the United States as creator, founder and musical leader of the Buena Vista Social Club.

Juan de Marcos is equally interested in highlighting Cuba's brilliant young musicians as highlighting Cuba's senior talent. Afro-Cuban All Stars not only have a genre-crossing ensemble, the group plays both classic Cuban styles like son and danzón and contemporary dance rhythms
