But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Saturday, May 6th – 7:30pm
Saltapatrás, from Mexico City,
with Dan Neville, vibes

Cecilia Perez Urias – jarana, vocals, zapateado
Diego Perez – bass guitar
Dan Neville – vibes, marimba
Andres Reyes – tambór and cununo

$20 cover charge (cash please). No one turned away for lack of funds. Admission in the last half hour is $5 upon request. BYOB.

Created in Mexico City by Cecilia Perez Urias and Diego Perez, Saltapatrás combines music with narrative theater, featuring a repertoire infusing original compositions with rhythms and traditional Mexican aesthetics, blending in jazz and Colombian forms. Their presentation is both aural and visual.

Tonight’s concert features the Bay Area’s own and now New York-based Dan Neville on marimba and vibraphone, and Colombian musician Andres Reyes, also now based in New York, on the percussion (tambór and cununo).

Leading into the Bird & Beckett Saturday night concert, Saltapatrás will give a workshop and performance Friday in celebration of Cinco de Mayo at La Peña in Berkeley.
