Lucie Arnaz – Latin Roots

The 2018 Stepping Out
For COD Benefit

Lucie Arnaz has created her own fiery, explosive, and heartfelt musical tribute to the rhythm of her roots and the man who introduced the conga to the United States, and Lucille Ball to television: her father; Desi Arnaz.

LATIN ROOTS is an eclectic Latin - American mix in English and Spanish highlighting songs from Irving Berlin and the Gershwins alongside tunes by Agustín Lara, Rafael Hernandez, Margarita Lecuona, and Desi Arnaz.

Critics raved: “Latin Roots sizzles with sophistication and sassy spice.” This show is the very subtle throb of the Latin rhythm itself.

Join these wonderful supporters of COD Foundation and College of the Desert.
