Jose Conde APAP showcase at S.O.B.’s
New York Debut of New Band and New Songs
As he prepares to record his first solo album of new songs, Jose Conde returns to the Art Presenters conference (APAP) backed by a new band, in a showcase at S.O.B.’s. Conde, who had a year of acclaim in '08 for his records (R)Evolucion (Mr Bongo), and Baby Loves Salsa (Ropeadope), and his widely seen YouTube election hit “Respondele A Obama” , glides the line between Latin heritage and American storyteller traditions. He shimmies between such diverse sounds as American and Brazilian old school funk, NYC dance beats, Afrobeat, reggae, Cuban son, and jam-band ballad while sliding poetically from universal themes of nature’s beauty to personal expressions of romantic longing and loss. His new band includes Brazilian percussionist Ze Mauricio (chorro ensemble), drummer Gintas Janusonis (Anjelique Kidjo), guitarist Marko Pankovich (Sweetcane), bass player Jorge Bringas (Albita) and conga player Roman Diaz (Yoruba Andavo). The show will be free for APAP attendees with conference badges. Otherwise tickets are $15 at the door. Zemog El Gallo Bueno and Hassan Hakmoun will also be performing later in the evening.
