MEMORY OF WATER: Sammy Figueroa plays the Hangpan: An Evening of Contemplative Music

8 PM
Zenmotel
Sammy Figueroa is a reknowned percussionist who has played with everyone from Miles Davis to David Bowie. His own Grammy nominated Latin jazz band is marked by dizzyingly complex rhythms and arrangements. But this evening we have the opportunity to experience another side of Sammy Figueroa: the contemplative, eclectic musician whose curiosity and fascination with unusual instruments led him to the discovery of the Hangpan, a steel drum-like instrument whose fluid, flowing tones bring the listener into a quiet and refreshed state of mind.

Sammy's recently released CD, Memory of Water, honors the hangpan and its sonic similarity to water. Sammy will be playing music from the album along with surprise guests whose music reflects the contemplative mood of the evening.
