WORLD: Sexteto Rodriguez Cuban-Jewish All Stars
Roberto Juan Rodriguez’s inventive blending of klezmer and timba isn’t as strange as it sounds and these two upbeat musics create a thrilling energy bursting with exhuberant optimism and the excitement of being alive. They brought the full house down a few years ago so reservations are strongly recommended.
Sexteto Rodriguez Cuban-Jewish All Stars is comprised of Cuban and Israeli musicians, Gilad Harel (clarinet), Bernie Minoso, Paul Simon's former bassist, Jonathan Keren (violin), Uri Sharlin (accordion/piano), Igor Arias Baro (congos/vocals), and Roberto Rodriguez (percussion) perform selections from the 2009 CD Timba Talmud, Roberto’s 5th CD on the Tzadik label. Catch this rising star following his great success at Lincoln Center and 92nd St. Y-Tribeca before it’s too late! Dancing is encouraged.
