Charanga Carolina 

When: Fri., Aug. 31, 6 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

In a nod to musical diversity this year, the Back Porch Music on the Lawn concert series at American Tobacco set aside three dates in its 2012 calendar for "Jazz on the Lawn"—about time. NCCU Jazz Ensemble and John Brown's Groove Shop rang in the new programming earlier this year; now Charanga Carolina delivers a Latin twist. This Cuban-style dance orchestra combines flutes and violins with horns and an Afro-Cuban rhythm section. Whether airing Nuyorican salsa or Havana timba, rural merengue or the cosmopolitan cha-cha-chá, this ensemble of professionals and UNC students is one of North Carolina's most distinctive and exciting Latin bands. No coolers are allowed, but blankets and chairs are welcome. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
