These three artists have joined together to form a musical tour de force, blending their artistry and talents to create a new synthesis of blues and Latin music. This unique combination of musicians—all virtuosos in their own right—features an amazing interplay and repertoire that promises to dazzle audiences.
Roy Rogers, one of the world’s finest slide guitarists (also an eight-time Grammy-nominated producer and recording artist), is renowned for his live performances around the world as well as his collaborations with John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt, and Ray Manzarek, among others.
Badi Assad (from Brazil) was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the world’s great guitarists. Classically trained, she has received numerous international awards in her prolific career. As a vocalist and percussionist, she is a true innovator, not only in technique but in performance. She has appeared in a variety of musical settings, from classical concerts with the Assad Brothers (her two older brothers) to jazz festivals with Pat Metheny and Larry Coryell.
Carlos Reyes is well known for his supreme virtuosity, not only on the violin but on the Paraguayan stringed harp. Classically trained as well, he has performed in many diverse genres of music worldwide—with his own band, in symphonies, and featured with such artists as Steve Miller and Arturo Sandoval.
[Roy Rogers] sounds the way good bourbon tastes, smooth and with a kick.
[Badi Assad] continued with Brazilian pop songs transformed by her imaginative virtuosity, moving from gauzy delicacy to vigorous propulsion, from dreaming to dancing and back.
—New York Times
With Carlos [Reyes], one moment you are lost in another worldly space full of dreams and longing, the next moment you are in solace—full of passion clearly found in the presence of virtuosity.
