Byron Carlyle Theater. April 3rd, 2010. 8:00 p.m.
The new Miami On Stage project, which features local performing artists on a regular basis in Miami Beach’s North Beach neighborhood, continues on Saturday, April 3rd with the great timba band Tiempo Libre at the Byron Carlyle Theater. The evening features the Miami theatrical premiere performance of their Bach in Havana, a salsa meets Classical music mash-up based on the Grammy-nominated CD of the same name.
The Cuban-born, Miami-based musicians of Tiempo Libre have catapulted onto the national stage with their clever, beautiful and danceable sound. With Bach in Havana, they took their love of the contrapointal Baroque music of J.S. Bach (having all been classically trained) and found a way to meld with the tropical, Afro-Cuban rhythms and instrumentation they usually perform. The resulting work has garnered praise and awards after being released by Sony Music.
