Danny Brito Latin Jazz Quartet
MONDAY, DECEMBER 31 5:00 PM
Danny Brito Latin Jazz Quartet

This year for our New Years Eve concert we are proud to present the Danny Brito Quartet and their Guanachicano Project. Guanachicano is a play on two words. Guanaco is what Salvodorian and Guatemala natives call each other in a playful and friendly manner. Chicano is a chosen identity of Mexican Americans in the United States. Being that there are two members of the group from Guatemala/El Salvador, and two from the border town of Nogales Arizona, combining the two words into one word best describes this music group. The result is a blend of Jazz, South and Central American Pop, Latin Jazz, Mexican Folk, and contemporary R&B stylizations. "Proyecto Guanachicano" is sure to capture and satisfy your sonic palette with their unique approach to music.
