"New World Beat and Siempre Flamenco team up to present a collaborative world music and jazz fusion performance event at the new South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center. The show, "Flamenco Jazz Jam", features vibraphonist Richard Sprince, guitarist Paco Fonta, bassist Agustin Conti and Flamenco dancers Celia Fonta and Paola Escobar, and will include original compositions from New World Beat's new CD release, "After Carnival". Three performances will take place on March 16, 17 at 8:30pm and on March 18 at 3:30pm, at SMDCAC's Black Box Theater."
Musicians are like mixologists trying to come up with the ultimate cocktail. Some strive to pour the perfect martini, while others experiment with their own innovative blend of ingredients. On “After Carnival”, the debut release of Miami-based New World Beat, the group has invented an original sonic cocktail, artfully combining memorable melodies and introspective harmonies with the sensibility of Brazilian jazz and world rhythms. Guest artists on the date include Jorge Pardo, Spain’s leading jazz instrumentalist and Chick Corea alumnus. Jazz fusion pioneer Othello Molineaux calls the release “exciting and refreshing…deep and passionate music.”
