Marc Ribot’s Los Cubanos Postizos
One of the ultimate New York City party bands, Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos (aka “The Prosthetic Cubans”) became a must-see attraction in the late 1990s, with its feverishly cooking shows built around arrangements of Cuban bandleader Arsenio Rodriguez – innovator of the son montuno, and two critically acclaimed albums released on Atlantic Records. Reformed by popular demand with the addition of Cuban’s own Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez on drums and original members Anthony Coleman (keys), Brad Jones (bass) and EJ Rodriquez (perc), 2011 had the band once again in front of ecstatic audiences from such stages as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Fuji Rock Festival and Ellnora Guitar Festival at the Krannert Center of Performing Arts.
“At every turn, Ribot dazzles with both his urbanity and his radical streak, creating a wonder of otherworldly Cuban soul.” – Guitar Magazine
Chia’s Dance Party
CHIA’s Dance Party is a New York City-based Quintet. The band delivers a unique musical experience where infectious danceable grooves mix harmoniously with extensive compositional and improvisational work. The quintet performs original material inspired by the Colombian rhythmic and melodic traditions, yet explores different genres and compositional approaches. CHIA’s Dance Party has a distinct sound as a result of the diverse background of its musicians. Ben Stapp, an exceptional tuba player brings his vast experience in experimental, Jazz and classical music. Alex Terrier on soprano sax delivers the best, virtuosic sounds of modern jazz. Justin Wood on alto sax and flute adds adventurous and fearless contemporary sounds and concepts. Rafi Malkiel on Euphonium brings his Middle Eastern, Salsa Dura, and Colombian sounds to complement this stellar ensemble. All of these sounds are catalyzed by musical director and composer, Martín Vejarano on Drums.
