The Etherredge Center for Performing and Visual Arts continues its 2019 Cultural Series with Havana Cuban All-Stars on Thursday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m. on the USC Aiken campus.

Tickets are available online at etherredge.usca.edu/performances/tickets.dot or by phone at 803-641-3305. Ticket prices are $40 and $15 for students.

"Havana Cuba All-Stars is a really fun group. They will be hard to listen to while sitting still," said Michael St. John, the house manager for the Etherredge Center. "I believe the Cuban All-Stars will enthrall Aiken with an exciting cultural spectacle."

This year, the All-Stars are back on their encore tour, the Asere Tour, or Friendship Tour, to bring Aiken some Cuban music, culture and dance, according to a news release from USCA.

"The All-Stars are expected to bring a rich culture with varied rhythms and melodies from 'Son Cubano' to cha-cha-cha and the rumba. Joining the musicians onstage will be a troupe of 'Cuba's finest dancers,'" according to Columbia Artists.

The Etherredge Center is currently halfway through its 32nd-annual Cultural Series. The Cultural Series continues Feb. 28 with the Turtle Island Quartet. The StepCrew will finish the year on March 22.

Next year will make the 33rd-annual Cultural Series and the first season under the leadership of the new Etherredge Center director, Paul B. Crook.
