Mezcla

Mezcla
  • October 6, 2017 7:30 PM Past

Under the direction of guitarist Pablo Menendez, Mezcla has been a part of the soundtrack of the Cuban music scene for the past thirty years. Mezcla brings together several veteran masters with some the best of young players on the scene today. When at home in Cuba they perform regularly at Havana's premier jazz club La Zorra y el Cuervo and at the annual Havana Jazz Festival (Jazz Plaza). Mezcla's music is a genuine celebration of the culture and musical roots of the Pearl of the Antilles. A ray of Havana sunshine that inspired Carlos Santana to call them “the cleanest, freshest water I have ever tasted!"

This residency was supported with a grant from the Fine Arts Diversity Committee's Guest Artist Initiative.
