New Latin Jazz in Charlotte: Rhythm+ THIS THURS (4/15)
Latin jazz band Rhythm+, led by percussionist Lucas Torres, makes their hometown debut this Thursday (4/15) at the Halton Theater in Charlotte.
Torres is a member of salsa band The Latin Project, and a strong exponent of Puerto Rican culture. He was the instigator of a spontaneous plenazo in Carmen's parking lot that was featured on Onda Carolina a year ago.
The group features Panamanian, Cuban, Mexican, American and Puerto Rican musicians, performing bass, drums, flute, piano, major and minor percussion, vocals and sax. Check out their website for more info. Good luck to them Thursday; I hope we get to hear Rhythm+ in the Triangle in the near future.
