Wednesday, March 19, 2014 ♦ 8:00 PM 4544 North Lincoln Avenue Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall Box Office: 773.728.6000 FREE! ($10 suggested donation) Elio Villafranca and Arturo Stable, two Cuban-born maestros of jazz and world music, unveil Dos y Mas, an exquisite new piano and percussion collaboration. Villafranca's virtuosic and multifaceted pianism engages Stable's poly-rhythmic percussion genius that pay tribute to the spiritual, classical and traditional legacies of Cuba, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Spain. The intimate musical journey of Dos y Mas was sparked nine years ago when Villafranca and Stable met for the first time in rehearsals for Jane Bunnett's band The Spirits of Havana. Their collaboration in that setting was so satisfying that it led Stable to suggest they develop their original works together and record a duet album. Over the years, the project grew and took shape, expanding into a cultural exploration much greater than the two of them could have anticipated, hence the moniker, Dos y Mas. (Two and More.) Steinway artist Elio Villafranca and Meinl artist Arturo Stable were both classically trained at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, and are now at the forefront of the latest generation of remarkable Cuban artists making major creative contributions to the international development of modern jazz.
