Event description
The UK debut of the extraordinary Tino Contreras playing music from his groundbreaking 1978 Quinto Sol album Musica Infinita.

About this Event

Musica Infinita is a psychedelic, experimental jazz record now re-released on Gilles Peterson’s Arc Records in January 2020.

“Musica Infinita merges avant-garde instrumentation with lush orchestral arrangements, placing it somewhere between the work of Hermeto Pascoal, David Axelrod and Sun Ra.” The Vinyl Factory

Born in Chihuahua in 1924 to a family of musicians, Contreras is a Mexican jazz master drummer who for more than six decades has melded Latin influences with free jazz, psychedelia, avant-garde experimentation and global sounds from Egypt, India, Turkey, and elsewhere. Tino's career started in the 1950s and has seen him share stages with many of the greats – including Dave Brubeck, Cannonball Adderley and the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Now in his nineties, Contreras continues to play, record, and receive recognition for his contribution to Mexican jazz and beyond.

16+. Each under 18 year old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
