BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

Art + Entertainment + Music + Music

Harold López-Nussa is rapidly building a global following in jazz and beyond. His tight-knit quartet captivates audiences with a relentless vivaciousness that “bridges generations and genres” (Billboard). His music reflects the full range and richness of Cuban music, with its distinctive combination of classical, folkloric and popular elements, as well as its embrace of improvisation. López-Nussa has performed at esteemed venues The Kennedy Center and SFJAZZ Center, as well as some of the best jazz festivals in the world: Newport, North Sea, Monterey, Montréal, Detroit and Playboy.

Harold will be performing with legendary harmonica master Grégoire Maret and renowned bassist Luques Curtis. Grégoire is a Grammy-winning harmonica player who has previously played alongside Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, and Prince. Luques is an upright bassist who has been featured in the bands of legends like Gary Burton and Eddie Palmieri. Grégoire and Luques will join Ruy López-Nussa, Harold's brother and longtime drummer to fill out the band. Harold and Ruy have performed individually with both Grégoire and Luques on previous occasions but this will be the first tour with all four on the stage together. Their blend of influences and experience is sure to make for a spirited and exciting performance.
