LULAWORLD 2013>AMHED MITCHEL - CD RELEASE WITH ROBI BOTOS & ALEXANDER BROWN
Presented by Lula Music and Arts Centre
As part of his Breath of Life Project, Cuban-Canadian drummer Amhed Mitchel launches his debut CD Path to Heaven. Mitchel’s octet, comprised of some the city’s most stellar jazz and Latin players including Elmer Ferrer, Stan Fomin, Roberto Riveron, Jorge Luis Papiosco, Luis Denis, Pablosky Rosales and Dave Restivo, will be joined by two very special guests - Robi Botos and Cuban trumpet virtuoso, Alexander Brown.
Written in honour and gratitude to his recently deceased father, Amhed composed the pieces over the course of the last year as a way of exploring light.” The beautiful and evocative melodies, complex Cuban rhythms and inspired arrangements highlight the unique voices of each of the ensemble’s players.
A highly-respected player internationally, Mitchel has performed with Chucho Valdez, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves and Leonel Lueke.
