About this event
Daniel Martinez formed the band Jarana in 2009 to amplify the joy and energy of his music and Lincoln Crossroads Music Festival wants to share that joy and energy with you! Remember your ticket purchase also includes admission to PERU I – AN ANDEAN WALKABOUT, held earlier in the evening at Turbine Flats. Jarana fusions sounds of the Andes with acoustic flamenco riffs, rock beats and the salsa flavor of montunos and timbales in the traditions of Flamenco, Rhumba, Salsa, Merengue Latin Fusion. JaRaNa (HAH-RAH-nah): [noun/verb] In Peru, when all ages come together socially in a public place to enjoy and celebrate with food, games, music and dancing – that’s jarana! It’s used much like the English “party,” but with richer meaning and more energy. Jarana is your band for energetic, danceable music blending South American, African and Mediterranean beats. Shows include Flamenco, Rumba and Salsa styles with complex rhythms and infectious beats and exotic melodies. A variety of Andean and South American folk ballads are sung with conviction accompanied on authentic, traditional instruments. The occasional familiar cover gets a Latin makeover that infuses it with new life making it uniquely Jarana. Daniel Martinez - Flamenco guitar, harmony vocals Oscar Rios - rhythm guitar, pan pipes, churrango, lead vocals Jami Fristo - drums and percussion Jeffery Utter - upright bass
