Carlos Santana‘s conga player, Paoli Mejias, is a Latin Grammy nominee and a distinguished master percussionist from Puerto Rico, ranked among the best in both Latin Jazz and salsa. His charisma and energetic Afro-Caribbean rhythms are notorious for bringing the public to their feet!
As a bandleader, Paoli fuses straight-ahead jazz with African, Mediterranean and Caribbean folkloric rhythms to create a new dimension of Latin Jazz that is global, energetic and modern. Mejias has performed and recorded with a long list of top artists: Carlos Santana, Chick Corea, Marc Anthony, Tito Puente, Luis Enrique, David Sanchez, La India, Seis del Solar, and Eddie Palmieri to name only a few.
The Paoli Mejias Quintet is bound to be an energetic evening of high octane Latin jazz.
Entry deadline is July 14 at midnight.
