The new Galeria Concerts events bring an opportunity for area arts patrons to enjoy a variety of music genres in a comfortable and convenient fine arts venue. The series is presented by the Galeria West art gallery, located at 111 Quimby Street in downtown Westfield, NJ in association with the SunRex Entertainment Group. The evening is recommended as an opportunity to enjoy a stimulating art exhibit plus a unique music concert experience. The Galeria Concerts event on Saturday, July 16, 2011 begins at 6:00pm with a display of selected art work by local and international artists and continues at 7:00pm till 8:30pm with the acclaimed original Latin American jazz sounds of pianist Emilio Teubal & La Balteuband.
La Balteuband is an instrumental ensemble lead by Emilio Teubal. His compositions are a blend of jazz and elements of Argentine music, such as rhythms like chacarera and zamba along with the lyricism of tango melodies. La Balteuband's music consists of rhythmically and harmonically rich pre-composed structures and improvised sections that highlight the musicality of each member of the band. This is what makes each performance of the group so fresh and special. Emilio Teubal, Argentinean, born in Spain, has lived for almost a decade in NYC where he earned a BFA in jazz performance from the City College of New York graduating Magna Cum Laude. He has been awarded with the prestigious Meet The Composer's Van Lier Fellowship 2007. He has also performed in some of the most prestigious jazz clubs in NYC such us Blue Note, Birdland, Sweet Rhythm, Dizzy's Coca Cola Club, Joes Pub, Cornelia Street Cafe, 55 Bar and The Knitting Factory among others. Emilio has been a member of different New York based music ensembles such as Sebastian Cruz's Coba, Los Chantas Tango Group, and the Marta Gomez group, with whom he has toured the USA, Mexico, Spain and Argentina. The members consist of Emilio Teubal (Argentina): piano, Tupac Mantilla (Colombia): percussion, Alejandro Florez (Colombia): guitar and Moto Fukushima (Japan): electric bass. Come to enjoy a special music treat and also perhaps plan to enjoy dinner before or after the show at one of several fine restaurants and cafes within walking distance in quaint downtown Westfield and the surrounding area. Enjoy the show!
