Felipe has shared the stage with musical giants such as Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, Wynton Marsalis, Conrad Herwick, Ignacio Berroa, Paquito Dâ€™Rivera, and many others. In addition to Arts Centers and Festivals performed all over the world and in USA, Mr. Lamoglia is bringing all this experience to IRESOUNDS which comes from an extended mixture of folklores including Afro-Cuban roots, Brazilian rhythms and Contemporary Jazz, resulting in a mix of Jazz, Beats and Clave.
All Afro-Cuban music and the majority of Latin jazz is rooted in a basic rhythm called clave, which developed out of the rhythms brought to the Caribbean by Africans during the slave trade.
With Iresounds you are welcome to delight the essence of Afro-Cuban Jazz music and the basic clave rhythms like Guaguanco, Rumba and Bolero but with a complete different modern view, still up to dance and full of improvisation and versatile creativity.
