Miramar and Rosette String Quartet

$20

Miramar is a sextet (sometimes joined by a string quaret) that features the awe-inspiring male-female singing duo of Rei Alvarez (Bio Ritmo) and Laura Ann Singh (Quatro Na Bossa). Effortless in their delivery of intricate harmonies, they are backed by bandleader Marlysse Simmons (Bio Ritmo) who alternates between vintage organs and acoustic piano, guitarist Bryan Vargas (Falu, Fela! The Musical) and a rotating cast of percussionists including Hector "Coco Barez (Calle 13, Bio Ritmo) and Giustino Riccio (Bio Ritmo), and bassists Rusty Farmer (Quatro Na Bossa) and Cameron Ralston (Spacebomb Records).  The band is based between Richmond, VA and Brooklyn, NY with strong ties to Puerto Rico, Chile and Brazil.

Miramar draws its inspiration from the golden age of romantic music, primarily that of the Latin American genre known as the bolero which was made popular by Mexican, Cuban and Puerto Rican combos of the 1950's. Also referred to as "trio music," the term bolero became synonymous with various slow to medium grooved Latin American dance rhythms. As the popularity of the bolero thrived, it also expanded and fused with other musical styles to create sub-genres of bolero-rock, jazz and disco. Miramar simply furthers expands the tradition through their own interpretations and exploration through new compositions with hopes to enrich a new audience that may be previously unaware of the genre.

In 2016, Brooklyn's Barb├Ęs Records released Miramar's debut album that featured original songs and arrangements of songs by the legendary Puerto Rican composer, lyricist, renegade and all around super woman, Sylvia Rexach.  Spring 2019 will see the release of a 45rpm record on the legendary Daptone Records label.  The group has been featured on NPR's Tiny Desk and at various concert halls and festivals across the USA including Lincoln Center's Out of Doors, Brooklyn's BRIC's JazzFest, NYC's globalFEST, Stanford University, Cleveland Museum of Art, The Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage.  The summer of 2019 will see the debut of Miramar in France at Lyons Les Nuits de Fourviere Festival.
