Bohemian Trio at the Side Door
Thursday, July 17, 2014
For their Side Door concert, Bohemian Trio will perform works from composers of the Americas, North and South. The program will feature original works that draw from diverse traditions ranging from the standard classical repertoire to Tango, Jazz, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music.
Formed in 2013 the genre-defying Bohemian Trio is a contemporary music ensemble based in New York City. Its founding members Yosvany Terry, saxophone & chékere, Yves Dharamraj, cello and Orlando Alonso, piano, are in-demand performers as well as accomplished composers.
With unique instrumentation and emphasis on improvisation, the trio’s focus is to premiere new musical works from a broad range of genres: classical, Afro-Cuban, Tango, Rock, Jazz & Electronic. Drawing on their own compositions and those of other post-modern classical composers, they are developing a new sound that echoes the melodies of Europe and South America, as well as the rhythms of the African Diaspora in the Americas. Their concert debut was in February of 2013 at the Music of Now Marathon at Symphony Space in New York City. The name Bohemian best captures the artistic spirit of the members of the trio; non-traditional, adventurous, romantic, idealist, and inspiring.
