The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is thrilled to welcome back Miami Big Sound Orchestra as part of the monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Dec. 27. Known as downtown Miami’s resident Latin Jazz big band since 2006, Miami Big Sound Orchestra combines 21st-century big band jazz with Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music, funk and soul. Their repertoire includes original compositions by Rafael “Cali” Valencia, legendary Miami bassist/composer; Chino Nunez, GRAMMY Award-winning producer; and Jaui Schneider, former pianist/composer of Ray Barretto; along with classics from legends such as the great Mario Bauzá.

The members of the Miami Big Sound Orchestra are all veteran Miami musicians who have performed and toured with top-name artists including Celia Cruz, Gloria Estefan, Issac Delgado, Jon Secada, Chayanne, Rey Ruiz, Tito Nieves, and K.C. and the Sunshine Band, among others.

The public is invited to enjoy the vibrant sounds of Miami Big Sound Orchestra, rain or shine. Guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. The late French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures. Both exhibitions are on view from Nov. 26 through March 29, 2020.

This holiday season, he is returning to his hometown to personally celebrate and release his new track, “Feliz Navidad.” with The Cris Cab Christmas Experience performances on November 27th at Bodega in Miami Beach.

Cris Cab, the wildly popular singer, songwriter and instrumentalist has taken on the challenge to fuse his native Miami style with the winter-time staple song of the season, “Feliz Navidad.” Cab’s Reggae and Latin sound enhances the original 1970’s hit, originally recorded by Puerto Rican icon, Jose Feliciano. Feliciano himself instantly gave his blessing after listening to the song firsthand, the single will be released on Friday, November 29 via Spotify. At the same time, the Prince of Miami is set to embark on a series of performances and events bringing “The Cris Cab Christmas Experience” to life in Miami introducing the track directly to his fans, the only approved version of the classic in its almost 50-year history.

Cab hails from Miami, Florida and has characterized his career by embracing his family’s Latin roots and creating a unique blend of sounds that could only come from growing up in one of the most multicultural cities in the nation. As an artist, he has combined reggae, Latin, pop, and soulful instrumentals throughout his discography. In addition to his unique sound, Cab’s live performance is an experience like no other, showcasing his six-piece band encompassed by world-class musicians.

Growing up, Cris Cab, identified his passion for music at an early age. At the age of 15, Cab became the protégé of one of the most influential figures in pop culture, Pharrell Willams. Since that life-changing moment, he has had the privilege of working and collaborating with award-winning artists such as Marc Anthony, J.Balvin, Big Sean, Mike Posner, Wyclef, B.o.B, and Farruko. He’s also had the chance to share the stage nationwide with Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, Lorde, and others. With his diverse recordings, Cab has become the new face of fusion, interpolating Latin, reggae and hip-hop styles to represent the true soul of Miami.

Cab has accomplished many of his childhood dreams, in an increasingly competitive and diverse field of young artists.

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting Afro-Peruvian producer, composer, arranger, educator and pianist Kiki Sanchez as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Nov. 29. Sanchez is among the new generation of young Afro-Peruvian Jazz musicians that are emerging on the national Jazz scene.

Sanchez blends smooth Latin Jazz with a perfect balance of tropical Afro-Peruvian rhythm and jazz harmonies for a high energy performance. Born in Lima, Peru, Sanchez began playing piano at age 11 and later moved to Miami, FL, where he continued studying piano and cultivating a deep love for American Jazz music. Sanchez holds a master’s degree in Classical Composition from Florida Atlantic University.

Sanchez has had the opportunity to play with Jazz legends such as Jim Gasior, Cachao, Mike Gerber, Arturo Sandoval and more. Sanchez has collaborated on GRAMMY-nominated albums including Best Instrumental Album, “Blown Away” with Frankie Marcos and Arturo Sandoval and Best Traditional Tropical Album, “La Onda Latina” with Frankie Marcos and Clouds. He also worked closely with well-known, GRAMMY award-winning producer, Glen Kolotin on numerous projects.

Sanchez has released two Latin Jazz albums, “Dreams” in 2007 and “Two Worlds” in 2011 featuring GRAMMY award-winner Susana Baca. As an educator, he has released an instructional DVD titled the “The Real Latin Piano and Intro to Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, Vol.1.” 

The public is invited to enjoy the vibrant sounds of Kiki Sanchez, rain or shine. To kick off Miami Art Week, guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures. Both exhibitions are on view from Nov. 26 through March 29, 2020.
