Sanctuary Suite Concert!
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: April 6, 2016
Peter Sprague will kick off his Sanctuary Suite, TONIGHT at 7PM at the Oceanside Museum of Art! It's your chance to take a trek into the soundscape explorations of world music-inspired jazz! Sprague’s Sanctuary Suite is a newly commissioned piece by Camarada that's grounded in the rich and diverse music of refugees who have found their haven in San Diego. The pure African 6/8 rhythm of Uluwatu sonically expresses the epic waves of this legendary region of Bali. Further global expedition leads the listener to a South American samba, Voltar Para Casa, which conjures up a vision of “riding in the back of a pickup truck on a Brazilian country road, heading back home through the jungle.” Happily expressing Peter’s music is Camarada’s own jazz quintet – Peter Sprague (guitar), Fred Benedetti (guitar), Beth Ross Buckley (flute), Gunnar Biggs (bass) & Duncan Moore (percussion). Camarada now invites you to find your sanctuary in this suite of music. To purchase tickets, click here!
