April 22 at 8 PM: Arts Garage presents Oriente, Miami's outstanding Latin jazz band.
Conceived by Cuban-born guitarist/composer Eddy Balzola after years of touring with show bands, reggae and Latin bands, Las Vegas clubs etc., Oriente’s signature sound features funky, guitar driven tumbaos, blazing harmonic brass, and explosive Afro-Latin percussion - fusing Cuban roots with Blues, Jazz, Caribbean and Brazilian influences. Their first New Orleans concert at world famous Snug Harbor Jazz Club created a major buzz, attracting local musicians and world class audiences excited by their new Cuban roots fusion. That New Orleans scene, drenched in roots music torn from the soul of the streets, in combination with the band's deep Cuban roots heritage, thoroughly impacted Balzola and continues to influence Oriente’s creative, hard-driving and soulful sound.
