Desde Mi Barrio – The Puerto Rican Side of Jazz

February 25, 2023 @ 7:15 pm


Puertorican Jazz Guitarist Richard Peña’s style intricately blends the traditional sounds of Latin music, the modern colors of post-bop/fusion jazz through the soothing warm sound of his guitar.

Peña has recorded 5 albums and has performed in international events such as the Berklee Highschool Jazz Festival (winner of the 2015 edition), Festival de Jazz de Carolina, Heineken Ventana al Jazz in Orlando and San Juan, Santo Domingo Jazz Festival at Casa de Teatro, and more.
