John-Carlos Perea Trio, Live at the Red Poppy Art House, August 9, 2013
On Friday, August 9th the John-Carlos Perea Trio will perform works in progress from Perea's forthcoming winter 2013 CD release "Creation Story" at the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco, CA. Musically, the ensemble explores the intersections between American Indian, jazz, and improvised musics. This performance marks the first time that these musicians will perform collectively in a trio format. The group features John-Carlos Perea (electric bass, Native American flute, voice), Jimmy Biala (drums, percussion, voice), and Karl Evangelista (electric guitar).

GRAMMY award winner John-Carlos Perea (Mescalero Apache, Irish, German, Chicano) maintains an active career as a performer and recording artist in San Francisco's Jazz and World music scenes. First Dance (Aerep Music, 2001), his debut recording as a leader, featured Perea's original musical compositions and performances on electric bass, Native American flute, and pow-wow singing. Thom Jurek noted that First Dance "feels like the late Jim Pepper's Comin' and Goin'" ( In addition to his musical activities, Perea holds a PhD in Music from UC Berkeley (2009) and serves as an assistant professor in the Department of American Indian Studies, College of Ethnic Studies, at San Francisco State University.

Percussionist Jimmy Biala is a long time collaborator with John-Carlos Perea. They have performed and recorded together in many diverse settings, including the Asian American Jazz Festivals in San Francisco and Chicago, concerts at the historical Paramount Theater in Oakland, and the Villa Montalvo Center for the Arts in Saratoga, California. As a professional educator, Jimmy leads workshops on American Jazz, Cuban and Brazilian percussion across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Guitarist Karl Evangelista ranks among a new wave of creative musicians grounded in jazz, 20th century experimentalism, popular song, and the exploration of the place of multiculturalism and ethnic co-existence in an increasingly post-cultural, trans-idiomatic cultural space. As the creative force behind boundary breaking group Grex, Evangelista has been called "essential current-and-future listening, his music "a near-seamless blend of modern jazz, contemporary structuralist composition, indie rock, and blues rock" (Tiny Mix Tapes). Via Asian Improv aRts, Evangelista was awarded a 2011 Zellerbach Grant for the composition of Taglish, a suite centered on Filipino-American culture; an album of the composition was successfully funded via Kickstarter and released in late 2012. Evangelista holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from UC Berkeley (2006) and an MFA in Improvised Music from Mills College (2009).
