ANCESTRAL MEMORIES QUARTET f. Yosvany Terry & Baptiste Trotignon
Led by the Grammy-nominated saxophonist, composer and educator Yosvany Terry and acclaimed Parisian pianist-composer Baptiste Trotignon, AMQ draws from the blues born of slavery, the sophistication of the salon, and the chants and rhythms of the African diaspora transformed under French colonialism in the Caribbean to forge an exciting new approach to modern jazz composition and performance.  AMQ will perform selections from their new CD Ancestral Memories, which was inspired by the music of Martinique, Guadeloupe, Haiti and Cuba.  DownBeat Magazine praised the CD as propulsive and profound.  

I am thrilled to play with the Ancestral Memories Quartet at Southside Cultural Center of Rhode Island as part of the Benefit Concert for Hurricane Relief. The musical traditions from the Caribbean are at the center of our musical repertoire, and now is the time to give back to the community when they need it the most, says the Cuban-American musician Terry.  

The Benefit Concert for Hurricane Relief is a partnership between the Southside Cultural Center of Rhode Island and Richard Snyder. These Co-Producers are presenting world-class music for a good and urgent cause: 60 percent of the concert proceeds will be donated to the humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief and to the Hurricane Relief Fund of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), with the remaining 40 percent of proceeds supporting the SCC.
