Nuevo Rumbon

Nuevo Rumbon is an Afro-Cuban jazz quartet featuring musicians Brian DiBlassio-piano, Kurt Krahnke—bass, Neeraj Mehta—congas and bata, and Jonathan Ovalle—drums. Their music is planted firmly in the contemporary Cuban tradition, paying homage to the great piano-driven bands of such artists as Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Danilo Perez, Michel Camilo, and the great Chucho Valdez. Aggressive percussion, thick montunos and a rock solid bass tumbao together create the explosive grooves of this fiery quartet. Members of Nuevo Rumbon have also been heard in concert with numerous other Afro-Cuban jazz and salsa ensembles, including Los Gatos, Tumbao Bravo, and Groupo Salvaje, and have been a featured group at Jazzloop 2007, as well as the Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Festival.

This monthly series, curated by UM Associate Professor Adam Unsworth, presents outstanding local artists in an intimate setting. This series is made possible by the Katherine Tuck Endowment.
