La Timbistica

La Timbistica is performing at the Festival Saturday on the Gazebo stage. Recently Berklee College of Music published the young band’s biography, which reads in part:

La Timbistica, who also perform as the Berklee Latin Jazz All-Stars, is led by conguero and Berklee student Paulo Stagnaro; and includes students, drummer Marcos Lopez and bassist Juan Maldonado; trombonist Nick Noonan and saxophonist Godwin Louis, both Berklee alumni; and pianist Alex Brown, a student at New England Conservatory. The Berklee Latin Jazz All-Stars won the 2008 Down Beat Student Music Award for Best Jazz Band, and recently lit-up the stage at the Duke Ellington and Monterey jazz festivals, two of the largest and most prestigious festivals in the U.S.

La Timbistica’s Latin jazz repertoire ranges from Afro-Cuban and Brazilian classics to some of its own modern original compositions. The group also performs contemporary salsa and timba by artists like Isaac Delgado, Marc Anthony, and Victor Manuelle. La Timbistica has quickly become a mainstay in the Boston music scene, making regular appearances at Havana Club, Mojito’s Lounge, and Wally’s Jazz CafĂ©, and at various music festivals in the area. Its members have performed and recorded with some of the Latin music industry’s most prominent musicians, including Paquito D’Rivera, Danilo Perez, Batacumbele, Truco y Zaperoko, N’Klabe, and Tony Perez, among many others.
