Jazz Special: Dafnis Prieto on Out to Lunch this Tuesday!
Join us this Tuesday, August 14th, from 12-3pm to hear drummer and composer Dafnis Prieto talk and play music. Hailing from Cuba, Dafnis has worked with such musicians as Henry Threadgill, Steve Coleman, Eddie Palmieri, and Michel Camilo; since being awarded the MacArthur Fellowship in 2011, he has continued to make waves in the Latin and jazz scenes.
In anticipation of the Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio (featuring Jason Lindner and Kokayi) record release show at the Jazz Standard that same night, Dafnis will be talking about his past and present musical projects and influences in addition to performing solo drum demonstrations and dedications live in our studios. Be sure to tune in as it's sure to be a blast!
