Feel the Cuban heat

Luis Mario Ochoa's Cuban Quintet performs at the Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission.

Luis Mario Ochoa’s Cuban Quintet comes to Mission in January.

If you want to experience a touch of Cuban heat, then check out Luis Mario Ochoa’s Cuban Quintet on Sunday, Jan. 27 at Mission’s Clarke Foundation Theatre.

A nominee for National Jazz Awards and Latin Jazz Artist of the Year (2007), Ochoa is a second generation singer, guitarist and composer graduating from the prestigious University of Havana’s Institute Superior of Arts.  He has played jazz festivals in Montreal, Halifax, Markham, St. John’s, Vancouver, Victoria, Oshawa and Toronto.
