There’ll be smoke on the floorboards at Music Hall when Tiempo Libre joins the Cincinnati Pops for A Night in Havana with high voltage Afro-Cuban rhythms and mashups of Classical, Jazz and Latin American music. The septet was a huge hit at the Aronoff in 2008
. “It’s going to be bigger, better and wilder,” promises Pops conductor John Morris Russell. Expect samplings from TL’s 2011 release My Secret Radio
on Sony Masterworks and their 2008 Grammy-nominated Bach in Havana
in new arrangements created for these performances. “Fiesta Maravillosa” follows Saturday night’s concert with live music, dance lessons, Latin food stations and a cash bar to benefit the Cincinnati Youth Orchestra. 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
