Award-winning composer, producer, bandleader, bassist, and educator Alexis Cuadrado and his new group, Cuarteto de Palabras, present a set of music inspired by the poetic and folkloric traditions of Spain and Latin America. Drawing from such diverse sources as the surrealist poems of Federico García Lorca, the moving protest songs of Víctor Jara, and the exuberant flamenco pop of the 1980s, Cuarteto de Palabras explores the Hispanic diaspora within an intimate setting that promises to enlighten your mind and stir your soul.
The concert will be presented in partnership with The Jazz Gallery during Cuadrado’s residency at The Pocantico Center.
