Session 73 Presents:
Yuka Seka (Dry Cassava/without seasoning) is a musical project from Guantánamo, Cuba, nourished by the sounds of the Jaibo River, the largest river in the Guantánamo valley area. This highly danceable music that band leader Pablo Moya has brought to New York has its origins in the traditional style of Changuí de Lajas (a kind of dance). It comes from the municipality of Tiguabo, where the Jaibo River starts and the former Central Soledad, a sugar mill area, where he was born.
Yuka Seka is:
Pablo Moya - tres, vocals
Tony de Vivo - percussion
Gabriel Machado - conga
Ruben Rodriquez - bass
Steve Gluzband - trumpet
Session 73 boasts an unflinching seven night a week lineup of Blues, Jazz, Latin and Funk while filling a more important niche than ever. The atmosphere at Session is all about food, music and mood. The small, shareable and international varied dishes encourage cross pollinating and casual sociable dining, while the live music fuses the bustling bar and separate lounge dining room into one scene. Whether you've come to eat, drink, listen or dance to great music, you're part of the overall scene.
