Nestor Torres and Mariano Morales accompanied by PIKANTE will be performing a Latin Jazz Special Concert featuring some of the original compositions and arrangements realized in a collaboration between Morales, Torres, and Guillermo Figueroa in 2018. 

The collaboration and the concert are a tribute to the Puerto Rican people, who although devastated by Hurricane María, are resilient and hopeful.  Musical devices such as the song of the Coquí (autochthonous small toad), and the use of the Bomba rhythm, serve as reminders of the sense of Puerto Rican pride on the island and abroad.

Nestor Torres is a prominent flutist who is equally at home in the genres of Latin, jazz and classical music. He has received a Grammy Award and several nominations for his 14 recordings as a soloist. Mariano Morales is a versatile composer, violinist and pianist with compositions ranging from symphonic works for orchestra to arrangements for Salsa and Latin Jazz bands. 

Presented by 516 ARTS and Outpost Performance Space as part of the citywide programming for Puerto Rico: Defying Darkness, August 11- October 20, 2018.
