Concert Announcements: Rhythm Foundation Kicks Off the Year
First up is Ottmar Liebert at the Gusman Center on Januaray 6. The German-born, Grammy-nominated guitarist is best known for blending jazz and flamenco for a nouveau twist on the traditional style. Then on February 16 they're bringing Nouvelle Vague to the Artime Theater. This Parisian group will thrill audiences with their sleek blend of everything from pop to bossa to new wave in a rather loungey and distinctly French cocktail. Like Pernod. Cuban songbird of Buena Vista fame Omara Portuondo brings some much needed cubaneo to the mix at the Fillmore on March 2. And French electronica duo Air blows into the Fillmore on March 13, presenting material from their latest, a more organic effort titled Love 2.
