2015 Latin Grammy winner for Best New Artist, Monsieur Periné returns to SFJAZZ Center to perform their trademark hybrid of French gypsy jazz with Latin American cumbia, bolero, tango, and samba.
“One of the most exciting emerging artists in Latin music” (LA Weekly), the 2015 Latin GRAMMY winner for Best New Artist performs a singular hybrid of French gypsy jazz with Latin American cumbia, bolero, tango, and samba. Formed a decade ago in Bogotá, Colombia by singer Catalina García and guitarists Santiago Prieto and Jairo Alfonso, the band has cultivated a fervent following by blending the spirit of 1930s music with the joyous and sophisticated sounds of contemporary Latin American pop — a worldly, boundary-blurring approach places them in the same echelon as contemporaries Natalia Lafourcade, Troker, Carla Morrison, and Bomba Estéreo.
