Peter Brainin & Talking Drum Is an Afro-Caribbean jazz quintet comprised of five of New York City’s most creative, in-demand and musically bi-lingual artists. The repertoire showcases high-energy originals by leader/saxophonist/composer Peter Brainin as well as by the group’s innovative pianist Luis Perdomo, and inspired arrangements of songs by composers as diverse as Wayne Shorter, Kurt Weill, John Lennon and Thelonious Monk. This group has been playing together for more than 15 years and is much inspired and informed by the music of Jerry and Andy Gonzalez (whom all of the members of Talking Drum have worked with at various times) and the Fort Apache Band. Some other prominent artists that the band members have worked with collectively and often together include Ray Barretto, Chico O’Farrill, Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Samuel Torres, Marlon Simon & Nagual Spirits, Barry Altschul, Marty Sheller, Bobby Sanabria, John DiMartino and many others. The band’s debut album Book of Firsts is due for release April 2022 on Cellar Live.

Brooklyn’s Los Hacheros are modern day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music. Their beat revives folkloric styles like Son Montuno, Guaracha and Salsa, and often combines them with Bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico.
