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.

Sought after bassist and pianist Yorgis Goiricelaya is a rising force in Miami's tropical music scene. He is featured here as a composer, arranger, performer and director of his own latin jazz project "Abriendo Caminos".

English: Yorgis Goiricelaya Martinez was born in Colon, Matanzas, Cuba. He started his musical career in Cuba at the tender age of eight, playing the piano. At the age of 10 he began to play in young local musical groups. Yorgis later moves to Costa Rica where, by 1997, he begins to play professionally as both a bassist and pianist. He later became a part of the most recognized Cuban group in Costa Rica, Conjunto Chocolate, in which he was manager, pianist, and composer. The group recorded two CDs with great success. With his name now known in Costa Rica he started producing music with some of the best known artists there.

In 2004 he launched his own independent music production named ..Abriendo Caminos...(Opening Paths). The album was released in August of 2005 exceeding the expectations of critics. He later launched a series of concerts which were noted as the best Cuban music around, such was the report from the Costa Rican newspaper, ..La Nacion... On this CD we find the multi-talented Yorgis directing, producing, writing music, playing the bass, piano, flute, and singing. In December of 2005 Yorgis moved to Miami, becoming a part of recognized dance groups like: Albita, Rey Ruiz, Luis Boffil, Manolin "El Médico de la Salsa", El Tumbao, and jazz groups such with Carlos Averhoff (Irakere) and Hilario Bell. Since then he has participated with important Latin musical figures such as: Oscar D..Leon, Albita, Rey Ruiz, David Bisbal, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Franco de Vita, Celia Cruz, La India, Jose Alberto el Canario, Chucho Valdes, Carlos del Puerto Jr, Ignacio Berroa, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Amaury Gutierrez, Ana Barbara, Johnny Ventura, Julio Sabala, Puerto Rican Power, Lucrecia, Francisco Cespedes and many others.
