Mixcla + 1 at the 2016 Monterey Jazz Festival

Mixcla + 1 opened the Garden Stage at the 2016 Monterey Jazz Festival. Students at the Berklee College of Music, in Boston, the band included performers from four nations:

Cuba: Zahili Gonzales Zamora, piano & vocals.
Ecuador: Paul Sanchez, trumpet
Chile: Gerson Lazo-Quiroga, bass
Japan: Takafumi Nikaido, percussion.

The music sparkled with energy, skill and ingenuity. Mixcla + 1 was hands down the best student band I've encountered.
