CulAnth major Eric Oberstein, Duke '07 produces Grammy winning album

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

This past Sunday in Los Angeles, an album produced by Eric Oberstein, CulAnth major Duke '07, Back to the Sunset, by the Dafnis Prieto Big Band (DPBB), won the GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Jazz Album.

Eric has had the pleasure of collaborating with Cuban-born drummer, composer, bandleader, and 2011 MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Dafnis Prieto on this project for the past three years. He also was fortunate to collaborate with two Duke alums on this project — Harsha Murthy '81 (Executive Producer) and John Hahn '74 (Associate Producer). Harsha accepted the award onstage with me in LA (video here).

Duke Performances will present the Dafnis Prieto Big Band at Baldwin Auditorium on Friday, March 29 (info here).
