New Caribbean Quartet at La Rhumerie

I am far away from Paris right now: I'm enjoying the summertime in Beirut. Stay tuned for photos and updates from this vivid, enticing city. Dazzling.

But if I were in Paris this weekend, I'd find my share of vivid and enticing: I'd head straight to to La Rhumerie on Sunday evening for a fabulous free jazz concert by the New Caribbean Quartet.

Formed just over a year ago and already taking the underground Paris jazz scene by storm, New Caribbean Quartet offers listeners a unique blend of contemporary jazz and the warm, joyful sounds of the Caribbean. The quartet’s original compositions incorporate traditional Caribbean music such as the beguine (akin to a slow rumba) and the mazurka (lively up-tempo dance) with the fresh sound of unmistakably modern jazz. You might not be able to tell the difference between these different styles of music, but the infectious groove of the rhythms will grab at your soul all the same.
