(Albuquerque, New Mexico) -- Alerting all jazz-lovers and music fans in general, the New Mexico Jazz Latino Orchestra will present a two-part show at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC). Their fourth performance at the NHCC will feature Latin Jazz, cha-cha, salsa, and rumba and showcase the versatility of the group’s musicians.
The concert is Friday, January 24 at 8 p.m. in the Albuquerque Journal Theatre on the NHCC campus.
The 13-piece ensemble seeks to highlight the great musical talents of New Mexico residents, while bringing in international guest artists to introduce audiences to traditional instrumentation and rhythms from Latin America and demonstrate how jazz fusion can provide a harmonious and exciting blend of ancestral and contemporary tones.
