      EVENT DETAILS
      David Virelles


      DownBeat Rising Star David Virelles, raised in a musical family in Santiago de Cuba and now a staple of the New York jazz scene, where he has collaborated with artists such as Henry Threadgill, Ravi Coltrane, and Romn Daz, has been hailed by Cuban piano legend Chucho Valds as the most advanced of our pianists, and as the new school of pianists from Cuba by tastemaker Gilles Peterson. In 2018, Virelles released Igb Alkrin (The Singers Grove) to critical acclaim, a heartfelt tribute to the music of his birthplace, featuring a range of Cuban styles danzn oriental, son, and trova. For this special concert at Duke Performances, Virelles will explore a program of danzones by some of the legendary composers of this 19th century genre (considered the islands national dance), informed by a contemporary approach. Virelles band will be rounded out by timbal (a percussion instrument originally used in tpicas), congas, giro, and acoustic bass.
