Past Shows (20)
Featuring musicians from Cuba, Venezuela, and Canada, this quintet has rapidly been building a reputation in Vancouver for its own exiting blend of progressive jazz and Afro-Caribbean rhythm. Its members have played this music at the highest level, making contributions of their own internationally to the music as a whole. Knowing it’s not enough to have talented individuals, Zapato Negro has become a real band through hard work and communication - enabling them to develop an eclectic and exciting concert repertoire that includes original compositions, underplayed jazz standards done in clave, and classics of Latin Music reworked, reharmonized or re-rhythmicized in jazz.
