On April 14th at 8pm, Empty Sea Studios presents Eli Rosenblatt Trio and Correo Aereo, two groups who continue to find ways to innovate while remaining solidly and soulfully rooted in the rich musical heritage of the Americas and Eastern Europe.
Eli Rosenblatt is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer whose passion for music and language have led him to travel the world and write music in a plethora of different styles and languages. On any given night you might see him playing salsa with an eight-piece band, classical guitar in a duo, klezmer or swing in a quartet or some mixture of all three. Spanish, English, Hebrew and French all make appearances in his repertoire, which ranges from quirky love songs to infectious dance grooves to haunting instrumentals. This trio, a collaboration with Trumpeter Michael Van Bebber and Drummer Dave Abramson, represents the most playful and experimental aspect of Rosenblatt's repertoire and performance style. The three musicians play off each other with a free, curious sense of humor as they move seamlessly through Klezmer, Swing and Afro-Cuban inspired Polyrhythms.
Correo Aereo (Air Mail) is an award winning acoustic multi-instrumental and vocal Latin/World Music Duo. They perform traditional music of Latin America: especially of Venezuela, Argentina & Mexico, as well as their own original music deeply inspired by swimming and playing in these ancient rivers of traditions while being alive to organic innovation. Dr. Juan Tony Guzman, Head of the Jazz Dept. at Luther College writes: "Listening to their performance one can unite space and time across cultures." Together, Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin combine an array of string and percussive instruments with silken vocal harmonies described as "locked in carnal embrace" by the Austin Chronicle. Their music is richly poly-rhythmic and soulfully melodic. Fiery, haunting, joyful! Abel Rocha sings & plays harp, guitar and cuatro. Madeleine Sosin sings & plays violins, maracas, bombo and jarana.
