          Combining the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, Project Trio is breaking down 
          traditional ideas of chamber music.  The genre-defying Trio is acclaimed by the press as "exciting a new
          generation of listeners about the joys of classical and jazz music."

The powerfully rhythmic and melodic Afro-Indigenous-Colombian music of La Cumbiamba NY recreates the traditional open-air Cumbia gatherings known as cumbiambas, the ensemble's namesake.  Musical director Martin Vejarano says "the band's music features traditional sounds with a contemporary approach, all present in the bands' original repertoire."

CALS Event #3:  ARKAI -- Violin, cello, and percussion
     This group provided us with a virtual recording that we posted on our website in Spring 2021.  How great it will be to see them in person!
     When and where:  Friday, March 31, 2023 at 8 p.m. in Old Main's Brown Auditorium
                   ARKAI Duo 3.jpg                ARKAI Duo 6.jpg
          ARKAI fuses classical virtuosity with the electricity of a rock band, the spontaneity of a jazz combo, and the beauty of a string quartet.  And then you throw in percussionist Jeremy Smith for an added bonus.
