Cinq à Six in the Summer -- July 16, 2011

rommel1.jpgComposer 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.
