Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico brings together two of the most influential families in Afro-Cuban music in a celebration of their late patriarchs: pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Bebo Valdés and composer, arranger and bandleader '€˜Chico'€™ O'€™Farrill. It'€™s a multi-generational tribute led by Arturo O'€™Farrill and Chucho Valdés - their sons, major figures in their own right - but also featuring the next generation, including pianist Leyanis Valdés, drummer Jessie Valdés, trumpeter Adam O'€™Farrill and drummer Zack O'€™Farrill.  In keeping with the theme of Familia, sitarist Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the great Ravi Shankar, is featured playing Raja Ram, a piece by executive and artistic producer Kabir Sehgal, inspired by memories of his father.  

The 12 tracks - presented over two discs, one featuring the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra and the other the Third Generation Ensemble - are a mix of classics by Bebo (Ecuación and Con Poco Coco) and Chico (Pura Emoción and Pianitis) as well as originals by their sons and grandsons.
