Description






An Evening of Indo Latin Jazz Music and Film


CONCERT
(45-minute set)

Mariah Parker's Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble, with special guest Grammy winning percussionist Mark Walker, will perform music from Mariah's upcoming third album.

Mariah Parker (composition, piano), Paul McCandless (woodwinds), Matthew Montfort (scalloped fretboard guitar), Kash Killion (bass), Ian Dogole (global percussion), and Mark Walker (drum set, Latin percussion).

"Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music. Intriguing melodies that draw musical inspirations from the tempos of Brazil, Cuba, India, and Spain make for an uplifting serene yet passionate musical journey into an ideal world.”
— Latin Beat Magazine

"...an intoxicating blend of East and West performed by musicians of astounding virtuosity. Like all the best jazz bands, this group is as disciplined as it is innovative, stopping on a dime when the composition calls for it and soaring into gorgeous landscapes of free association the next moment that are as pleasing as they are adventurous.” — Paul Liberatore


FILM
After the concert enjoy a screening of the award-winning film Los Hermanos.

Virtuoso Afro-Cuban-born brothers—violinist Ilmar and pianist Aldo—live on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Tracking their parallel lives in New York and Havana, their poignant reunion, and their momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothers offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.

Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score, composed by Cuban Aldo López-Gavilán, performed with his American brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet.
