It was only one show (for now) but boy it was a blast!
In january I was writing the arrangements for a new show with the Cubop City Big Band lead by Lucas van Merwijk.
In previous editions of the Otro Mundo-series the CCBB had interpreted music from Venezuela and Colombia.
This year it is Candombe, the beautiful music fom Uruguay.
Songs by Jaime Roos, Hugo Fattoroso, Banda OPA and others were the centerpiece of a concert in Theater de Kom in Nieuwegein featuring José Lopretti on bass, José Perez on percussion and the beautiful Beatriz Aguiar on vocals.
It was a memorable first show with hopefully many more to come.
