@ Havana Jazz Festival, Cuba
and dazzled international audiences with their fiery sounds.  Brownman would subsequently asked by Chucho Valdes himself to
perform with the legendary IRAKERE as a special guest soloist.  Footage from this ground-breaking performance will be
up on brownman.com soon.  A proud moment for Canada.
