Monsieur Periné is one of the leading bands in Colombia’s new music scene, Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist and earned a Grammy Award nomination for their most recent album, Caja de Música. Rooted in gypsy jazz and celebrating the tradition of Django Reinhardt, Monsieur Periné’s fresh style adds a variety of Latin elements to the mix. Incorporating genres like cumbia, son, bolero, tango, and samba, the band performs on traditional South American instruments from the charango, to the bandoneón, and Latin percussion. Their airy yet virtuosic instrumental foundation connects 1930s Paris with the youthful spirit of modern Bogotá. It is the perfect backdrop to showcase Catalina Garcia’s sugar-sweet, sunshiny vocals at the very center of their signature “swing a la Colombiana” style. With the help of the illustrator José Arboleda and their own fashion designer, the band has created a world of their own that comes to life in their music, their artwork, and, of course, their performances.

Dizzy, Chano and Chico — The Original Influencers 75 Years Later at Town Hall

[New York] – The Afro Latin Jazz Alliance & The Town Hall Present: Dizzy, Chano and Chico — The Original Influencers — 75 Years Later at Town Hall. A celebration of the monumental moments when jazz met the rhythms of Cuba and changed the face of modern music forever. In 1947, legends Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo composed “Manteca” — one of the earliest foundational compositions of Afro-Cuban jazz and among Gillespie’s most famous recordings. In December ’47, Dizzy and Chano performed it live at the famed Town Hall in New York City. Consecutively, composer Chico O’Farrill’s masterpiece “Afro Cuban Jazz Suite” brought together bandleader Machito with O’Farrill and Charlie Parker, among others. O’Farrill’s work to meld modern jazz with Cuban big band continued with his collaboration with Dizzy on “The Manteca Suite.” ALJA and Town Hall celebrate Dizzy, Chano and Chico for their groundbreaking introduction of Latin music influences in jazz.
