Candombe meets Bostonia!
August 2nd @ 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Alejandra Gala is a trumpet player from Uruguay, South America. She has been immersed in Uruguayan traditional music called Candombe. Alejandra’s music transmits a message that configures within each listener. She is interested in exploring the connection between different languages, rhythms, and traditions.
“Music is a sacred space where I seek who I am. As an improviser the connection with the “now” is as vital as breathing. Is the opportunity to tell stories…the opportunity to be.”
The Uruguayan trumpet player presents a show called “Candombe meets Bostonia!”. Her quintet features Noah Preminger (tenor sax), Eric Hofbauer (guitar), John Lockwood (double bass) and Carlos H. Pou (drums).
