Thursday October 22nd, 2009 - 9 pm to midnight

MyMoon Presents:

 

A Cuban Salsa Party with,

 

Quimbombó Quartet

featuring Cuban Vocalist Igor Arias

 

Performing son, salsa, timba and more...

 

Quimbombó, a groove-oriented band with roots in Cuban dance music, always maintains strong elements of improvisation and spontaneity in its sound.  The group’s lively and unique sound has excited audiences at many venues including Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing, SOB’s. They have recorded two CDs, Quimbombó, released in 2004, and Conga Electrica, released in 2008.

 

Conga Electrica, the second album from New York-based Quimbombó, brings together musicians from all over the world for a refreshing take on Cuban dance music.  While strongly rooted in the traditional son style, this record incorporates non-traditional elements such as electric guitar and a Brazilian-style bateria (drum section) to create an energetic new sound. 

 

Quimbombó Quartet is:

Nick Herman - director/percussion

Igor Arias - percussion/vocals

Julian Chang - guitar/vocals

Mario Rodriguez - bass/vocals
