Roberto Poveda Quintet at Terraza 7 Live Music on Thursday March 8th 2012 at 9:30 pm $5 cover for mezzanine. Roberto Poveda, is without a doubt a performer with the unique ability of reaching deep down into his Cuban roots, and deliver Soulful, Eclectic, and Hypnotizing songs which he both writes and performs with the passion of a true artist. Poveda is a performer who has wandered with his guitar from one venue to another over the past few years, building an audience of loyal followers. Poveda’s unique approach in combining the various Cuban music forms of Son, Bolero, Rumba, & Timba, with Jazz, R & B, and Rap has resulted in a sound of his own. Roberto released a new album in January 2012 entitled Roberto Poveda and Brooklyn Nights, is a twelve song performance that showcases not only his famous laid-back vocal style, but also his strong ability to write emphatic lyrics in a discourse about life, love and existence. Along with his approach to the wide range of rhythms from the tradition of Cuba’s Son Montuno and the Guaracha, in Brooklyn Nights, Poveda seductively intertwines his melodies with elements of the Bolero Feeling and finally the Blues. Roberto Poveda (guitar, voice) Fima Ephron (bass) John Pondel (electric guitar) Jaime Affoumado (drums) (plus guest musicians)
Jose Conde Trading the Cuban tres for a vintage Gretsch, Jose Conde’s new music is a refined and personal blend clothed in electric, organic, funky world beats and inspired by trees, elephants, dogs, sexy dresses and love. His third album, a self-titled record of 15 tracks, is a stretch from his previous world-acclaimed work, with diverse influences and colors from South Africa to Brazil to Peru. With humor and rhythmic phrasing undeniably and soulfully Cuban, yet uniquely Conde, the music is delivered with deep grooves by his new band, the nu Latin groove. Los Crema Paraiso Los Crema Paraiso bring an electronica perspective to Venezuelan traditional music that is grounded in jazz, rock, funk and latin world grooves. The high-energy power trio of Neil Ochoa (Si Se), José Luis Pardo (Los Amigos Invisibles) and Alvaro Benavides (Pedrito Martinez Band) get audiences moving with influences ranging from Tom Jobim to Pink Floyd. Roberto Poveda Poveda is a bluesy, funky Cuban singer-songwriter who writes sophisticated trova melodies that he performs with the grit of Tom Waits and the sensibility of Sade. DJ Bongohead will be spinning vinyl funk/Latin/salsa/boogaloo for adventurous listeners and dancers before, after and in between!
