OnStage @ APL presents Havana NRG
Friday, October 13, 2023
Texas group Havana NRG (New Rhythm Generation) offers a spicy timba-influenced salsa. This nine-piece band's creative blends of rhythmic syncopations, intriguing melodies, and contemporary beats are inspired by classic salsa orchestras of the Caribbean's fabled past.
Performers are female vocal lead Paola Murillo, Mariela Suarez on piano and vocals, Michael Romero on trumpet and vocals, Ivan Martinez on timbales, trombone and vocals, Ramon Rodriguez on bass and vocals, Jeff Fort on saxophone, Georber Nodal on trumpet, Melvin Garcia on percussion, and Jose Blanco on congas.
Former WFAA, Channel 8, reporter Amanda Salinas declares, “This Cuban orchestra pumps out contagious Latin rhythms that salseros and others won’t be able to resist. Havana NRG has made its mark in Texas and is ready to take on the world.”
