LOS VAN VAN at MEZZANINE presented by EARSHOT ENTERTAINMENT - Fri, Aug 18, 2017, 9:00 PM - MEZZANINE 444 Jessie Street San Francisco, CA 94103
Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

Stunning in it's versatility and delivery, Havana NRG! plays salsa, timba, bachata, son and merengue with matching fire.

“Our main focus, even though we are Cubans, is that we show we’re ready to play any type of music. People at first had doubts about us doing ‘too many styles’, but we, as a band, stuck to the positive feelings we had about the versatility of our CD.” states, musical director Mariela Suarez.

When you hear it, it’s easy to agree with the hundreds of people packed onto the dance floor for Havana NRG at the Granada night club, dancing everything from rueda de casino, to salsa on one and on two. Yes, as Mariela explains, it is a mixture and a tasty one at that. The CD starts with a couple of smooth salsa tracks with that unmistakably Cuban spice. There are a couple of merengues, one being very romantic that dancers can float across the floor to, another with a heavier, funky beat for all those shimmies and tricky turns. There are a couple of elegant charangas with soulful Cuban rhythms. There’s a cool Latin jazzy mambo track that can be enjoyed by dancers who like their salsa on 2. There’s a nice Bachata for dancing with that special someone plus and a fresh salsa-hip-hop song.
