Mariah Parker’s Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble, with special guest Grammy winning percussionist Mark Walker, will perform music from Mariah’s upcoming third album, Windows Through Time, followed by a screening of award winning film, Los Hermanos, with introduction by the filmmakers Marcia Jarmel and Ken Schneider.
Mariah Parker (original compositions, piano), Paul McCandless (woodwinds), Matthew Montfort (scalloped fretboard guitar), Kash Killion (bass), and Mark Walker (percussion).
“…an intoxicating blend of East and West performed by musicians of astounding virtuosity. Like all the best jazz bands, this group is as disciplined as it is innovative, stopping on a dime when the composition calls for it and soaring into gorgeous landscapes of free association the next moment that are as pleasing as they are adventurous.”
— Paul Liberatore
FILM SCREENING FOLLOWING CONCERT: LOS HERMANOS
Virtuoso Afro-Cuban-born brothers—violinist Ilmar and pianist Aldo—live on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Tracking their parallel lives in New York and Havana, their poignant reunion, and their momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothers offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.
Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score, composed by Cuban Aldo López-Gavilán, performed with his American brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet.
