Banda Nueva York Valentine's Day Special

 

Banda Nueva York creates the energy and power of the authentic sound of the great bandas of Sinaloa, Mexico.19th century European immigrants brought their bands to Mexico and inspired the music that would grow into the Sinaloense sound that Banda Nueva York strives to recreate through a full instrumentation of trumpets, trombones, clarinets, alto horns, sousaphone, percussion and singers. Made up of the finest musicians in the city, Banda Nueva York's members perform many different styles of music in their professional lives, but it is an unwavering affection for the music of the deserts, mountains and beaches of North Western Mexico that brings them together for this ensemble. Many of us have strong connections to Mexico having lived there, been born there, grew up close by, or travelled and toured extensively throughout the country. We hope to bring this real world experience and “alma” to this great music. Members of Banda Nueva York have performed on the worlds great stages including: Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Disney Concert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, Mexico City's Palacio de Bellas Artes, Auditorio Nacional and elsewhere, with great orchestras such as the NY Philharmonic, LA Phil, Metropolitan Opera, American Symphony and Boston Symphony, on the same stage with Placido Domingo, Max Weinberg, the Temptations, Josh Groban, Lila Downs, Eugenia León, Natalia Lafourcade, Mariachi Real de México and Jarana Beat, and work regularly on Broadway and at Radio City Music Hall.
