with special guest, Edgar Cruz
Sunday, June 5 | 7pm
Love’s Travel Stops Stage and Great Lawn
The eight-person group combines the rhythms of Afro-Caribbean salsa music with jazz harmonies and improvisations to produce the Latin Jazz hybrid style. The ensemble gets the name “Mezclave” from “mezcla,” which is Spanish for “mixture,” and “clave,” the Afro-Caribbean term for the rhythm of salsa music.
Mezclave has been performing for over 20 years under the direction of bassist and composer Edwin Canito Garcia.
Their performances have included NYC, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Tulsa and Northwest Arkansas.
