04.07 - Amparanoia together with Orishas and Los Van Van at the Blue Note Records Festival Saturday July 22
Amparanoia is the musical brainchild of Spain's Amparo Mercedes Sanchez, one of the most vibrant and cutting edge singers of her generation, full of boundless talent and Latin vibes.
Amparanoia render a fresh mix of ranchera, Cuban son, reggae, rumba, bolero, ska and mariachi, mashing up Spanish Cuban, Mexican and Caribbean with a punked-up attitude.
27.06 - Orishas together with Los Van Van at the Blue Note Records FestivalSaturday July 22
Insurance Companies and Agencies in Corpus Christi Texas
the Cuban group Orishas
completes the day program.
It's been quite a journey since Orishas released their first album 'A Lo Cubano'. Lauded by the press throughout Europe ever since it came out, the group launched into a marathon tour that started in summer 1999.
Orishas left no doubt that their musical fusion enables them to break the frontiers of style and to be equally at home in front of a latino, hip hop, pop or rock audience.
22.06 - Los Van Van feat. Juan Formell and David Murray at the Blue Note Records FestivalLos Van Van
, is led by Juan Formell
, a bassist who in 1967 became musical director of Orquesta Revé, Formell reformatted the group into Changui in 1968, before founding his own group, Los Van Van. The attention paid to tone, harmony, and rhythm are at center of Juan Formell's work. Theuy will perform Saturday, July 22.
Friday July 14 David Murray & The Gwo-Ka Masters
will replace the Andrew Hill Sextet. Andrew Hill has cancelled his tour due to health problems.
Collaborations between jazz players and musicians indigenous to other cultures can be uneasy affairs. Too often the results are well-intentioned but fail to achieve musical fusion - in spite or perhaps because of an abundance of mutual respect. Working with Guadeloupe's Gwo-Ka Masters saxophonist David Murray overcame this hurdle, forging a meeting of music in a performance that is energetic, adventurous, and even danceable.
Also Uri Caine
has been added to the program. Together with his Bedrock Trio
he will replace Eliane Elias Tuesday, July 18
