About Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio

With the Proverb Trio, Grammy-winning Cuban percussionist Dafnis Prieto set out to achieve one of his most ambitious goals: To improvise entire compositions, complete songs that could delight and inspire as much as anything in the repertoire. Together with keyboardist and synth master Jason Lindner and vocal artist Kokayi, he astounded the jazz world by doing just that on their debut album. You can expect immense soundscapes, deep grooves, and stories that will hold your attention the whole night.
