Puerto Rican musical artists Nestor Torres and Mariano Morales accompanied by PIKANTE perform a Latin Jazz special concert featuring some of their original compositions and arrangements. This concert is dedicated to the people of Puerto Rico. The artists are working together in a collaboration between Morales, Torres and Guillermo Figueroa for a concert with the Santa Fe Symphony under the direction of Figueroa at the Lensic on Sunday, October 14, 2018. Musical devices such as the song of the Coquí (autochthonous small toad), and the use of Afro Puerto Rican Bomba rhythms, serve as reminders of the sense of pride of the Puerto Rican people on and off the island. Nestor Torres is a prominent flutist who is equally at home in the genres of Latin, jazz and classical music. He has received a Grammy Award and several nominations for his 14 recordings as a soloist. Mariano Morales, who makes his home in New Mexico, is a versatile composer, violinist and pianist with compositions ranging from symphonic works for orchestra to arrangements for the world’s most renowned Salsa and Latin Jazz artists.
