Peak Performances Presents Miguel Zenón in “Esta Plena”

One performance only on Saturday, February 6 at 8:00 p.m. at the Alexander Kasser Theater

Be immersed in a jazz creation of real genius as two time Grammy-nominated saxophonist Miguel Zenón and his ensemble perform an original work inspired by plena, a popular folk music form that originated in Zenón’s homeland of Puerto Rico. A noted Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow, Zenón reawakens the spirit of this traditional music in Esta Plena, an evening-long program that explores both the instrumental and vocal elements of this art form.

This music is made possible by a Fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation.

Featuring:
Miguel Zenón, alto saxophone
Luis Perdomo, piano
Hans Glawischnig, bass
Henry Cole, drums
Héctor “Tito” Matos, lead vocals and percussion (requinto)
Juan José 'Juango' Gutiérrez-Rodríguez, percussion (seguidor)
Obanilú Allende, background vocals and percussion (segundo)
