Enjoy an unforgettable night in the company of your friends to the sound of the guitar music of Mazatlan born Daniel Torres, Brazilian Tom Jobim, Cuban Eduardo Martín and French Roland Dyens. During the concert you can listen to the carnival and the Brazilian popular music of A Felicidade by Antonio Carlos Jobim co-authored with Vinicius de Moraes; the Cuban instruments and clave, seasoned with seductive articulations of a pop language that mediates between modern Latin-jazz and the open harmonies of the classic insular bolero in Eduardo Martín’s Inevitable; the improvisational art and liberated fire of Roland Dyens; and the universe of styles and sounds that draw from attractive jazz sources and, above all, multi-ethnic sources such as tango, Brazilian popular music and regional music of Sinaloa from the compositional mastery of Daniel Torres.
