Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes for Live Constructions

Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm

Tune in to Live Constructions tonight, April 23, from 10:00-11:00 PM EST for a set and interview with the Brooklyn-based dynamic free jazz duo Aquiles Navarro (trumpet & vocoder) Tcheser Holmes (drum kit & drum machine). Having met in jazz conservatory, Navarro and Holmes bring together sounds from old swing to modern DJ and hip hop beats, merging traditional acoustics with new-tech instrumentation. Navarro, Panamanian, draws on Latin jazz, folkloric music, and reggae, while Holmes, from NY draws on Afro-centric tradition, rock, hip-hop, and house to construct new musical dialogues. The duo discusses collaborative listening, music sharing, growing communities, and new voices in their New York music circles.
