Event description

Description

Anansi Trio As part of its 2017-2018 Premier Artists lineup, The Concert Series presents the Anansi Trio. A fusion of Jazz, Indian, and Afro-Cuban musics, the Anansi Trio features Mark Merella (drums), Matt Beltzer (saxophone), and Larry Melton (bass).

Anansi Trio is a group of like minded musicians drawing from a wide range of musical influences. Taking their name from a West African trickster spirit associated with storytelling, the trio uses the language of Jazz as their starting point. Adding elements of Afro-Cuban and Indian music as well as other global traditions, their sound is deep and diverse. Using percussion, saxophones and acoustic bass they create a music that’s unique and experimental yet remains accessible. With a strong rhythmic approach and a focus on improvisation Anansi Trio hopes to put their own stamp on the American legacy known as jazz.
