Born in Colombia, a sort of middle ground in Latin Music, Memo Acevedo is highly regarded in the fields of Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music, having received (among numerous awards) one from the Cuban Ministry of Culture in Havana (2014). On drumset, Memo illustrates the community underscoring the diversity of Latin styles wrapped with Jazz elements of Be Bop; something he calls ‘Global Jazz‘. Even if you don’t know the difference between Samba, Songo and Cumbia, Memo, Jacquelene and their associates are going to have you feeling it in no time flat. Memo Acevedo & his daughter Jacquelene Acevedo have been making a buzz internationally and they’re excited to have their 10 piece Manhattan Bridges Orchestra aka MBO at this Local.
