Classical, jazz and world music: the diverse sounds and rhythms of Cuba and the Americas
The Bohemian Trio Brings Its Signature Sounds and Rhythms to the Chapel Restoration
“Together, these musicians honor heritages that blur more than reinforce borders: the blend of European and African traditions that centuries ago amounted to a New World.” The Wall Street Journal
The concert in the historic Chapel on the Hudson features Yosvany Terry, saxophone; Yves Dharamraj, cello; and Orlando Alonso, piano; performing their unique melding of music from diverse traditions. The Bohemian Trio was formed in 2013 by the three musicians, who come from different cultural and musical backgrounds, to explore the idea that their blend of traditions would speak to the true voice of the Americas: a cacophony of cultures that, together, forges a new identity that transcends Old World boundaries. With roots in Cuba, France, Trinidad, and the US, the Trio shifts intuitively among classical, jazz, and world music. At the heart of their collaborations are Yosvany Terry’s original works, which are driven by Afro-Cuban rhythms, sweeping classical melodies, and a touch of improvisation; rounded out with commissioned works by contemporary composers and favorites from the classical repertoire.
