CUBAN TRUMPET SENSATION:

KALÍ RODRÍGUEZ-PEÑA COLLECTIVE FT. VOCALIST GINA D’SOTO + SAXOPHONIST KAZEMDE GEORGE

With Javier Santiago (keys) and Josh Jones (drums)

Kalí Rodríguez-Peña is a sensational young trumpet virtuoso from Cuba. He is a thrilling young trumpeter, composer, arranger and bandleader, and considered one of the leading voices of a young generation of talented Cuban musicians.

Currently, Kali is finishing his degree in Jazz Performance at Manhattan School of Music while playing with his own band in different clubs around New York. Kali, one of the new Rising Stars of the Latin Jazz says “I want to break with the concept of what “Cuban music” is, or means. Cuban music is more than what people think. I know my roots, and I love them, but I also live in the 21st century and I believe in upgrades. I want to modernize the Cuban Music. I want to merge everything I know and I’ve learned so far. I think is possible, and I don’t have to lose my roots to do this.”

His personal style blends traditional Cuban sounds with influences from Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, and Wayne Shorter, as well as R&B and Hip-Hop. He has also shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis, and a plethora of other jazz greats. He will be at Black Cat all week with his band. Do not miss out on the chance to hear this bright young star in person. Book now!
