“Her quintet burns with the intensity of one of Woody Shaw’s great hard bop units, yet it can also step lightly through the dance rhythms…and turn up the funk.”
–Downbeat Magazine

Leading this ten-piece ensemble, Rosewoman deftly integrates brass and rhythm sections with folkloric cornerstones including bata and conga drummers, traditional vocals and dance. Honoring the late Orlando ‘Puntilla’ Rios, master Cuban percussionist/vocalist and once featured ensemble member of New Yor-Uba, this special evening of celebration promises to be an explosive evening of unforgettable cultural synergy.

Michele Rosewoman on piano/vocals; Roman Diaz bata/congas/vocals; Abraham Rodriguez bata/congas/vocals; Eddie Allen trumpet; Logan Richardson alto/soprano saxophones;  Mike Lee  tenor saxophone; Howard Johnson  baritone saxophone/tuba;  Alex Hernandez  bass; Rafael Monteagudo drums; featuring Pedro Martinez, multi instrumentalist, vocalist, and co-founder of Yerba Buena.
