Edwin Perez: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

206 Weergaven 21K

Every January, I attend globalFEST at a New York City nightclub and see some of the most fantastic music I'll experience all year. Now, given the pandemic's challenges and the hardening of international borders, NPR Music and globalFEST moved the 2021 edition from the nightclub to your screen of choice and shared the festival with the world. We called it Tiny Desk Meets globalFEST. We presented 16 artists in intimate settings (often behind desks donning globes), all hosted by African superstar Angélique Kidjo.
From the basement of the Bowery Electric in downtown Manhattan, composer and vocalist Edwin Perez and his 10-piece band come together to put on a show. With a strong backbeat and enough room to move around, Perez's up-tempo energy brings the party and keeps it going. The theme of the night is salsa dura music, which originated in New York in the 1970s and gained acclaim thanks to acts like the Fania All-Stars and Spanish Harlem Orchestra.

    Edwin Perez es... "La voz de Pueblo". Yo lo conocí con "La excelencia" y el tema "Iyanla". Su álbum debut como solista es un discazo y estas canciones en su mayoría de su segundo álbum se escuchan 3000 veces mejor en vivo. Me sorprendió ver a Yuniel Jiménez (escuchen su tema "hay gente pá to"). Excelentes músicos los de esta Orquesta y la mayoría de músicos que tocan salsa por eso nunca morirá
