Cinq à Six in the Summer -- July 16, 2011
Composer and guitarist Roberto Lopez takes you on a musical journey as he revisits a series of Colombian classics. Inspired by big band jazz, each piece is newly arranged and infused with the sounds of soul, jazz and funk. Rounding off the concert are a series of Roberto Lopez's most recent compositions.
To create this performance López spent two months in Colombia studying and researching its musical traditions.
Brazilian-born young musician Rômmel Ribeiro (pictured) combines Brazilian music, Afro, reggae, jazz, funk, and hip-hop. Born in São Luís, Brazil and raised in a family of musicians, Rômmel now lives in Montreal working on a number of projects, including live performances and recordings, song writing, and musical research.
