Alexander Wu and the ZigZag Quartet take audiences of all ages on a journey across Latin culture to find the threads of salsa, samba, tango, and meringue throughout classical, jazz, and modern musical compositions. Latin influences abound if you listen carefully, and top tango dancers Carolina Jaurena and Diego Blanco bring Argentine music to life with their smooth moves. Performances include a Q&A with the artists.
