8pm Doors/DJ | 9pm Live Music
It's a jam session, it's a dance party, it's a live show — and it always features the hottest talent on the scene!! Sittin' In is the free, monthly jam session at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Blending edgy horns, choice vinyl, cutting edge MC's and soaring vocalists, each session is unique, led by a stellar lineup of guest hosts and their band of choice.
This month, join singer/songwriter Melvis Santa, one of the newest voices of Afro Cuban & Latin Jazz. Melvis has touched audiences and critics, with a creative and soulful energy that eclipses the boundaries of Cuban rhythms, soul and jazz parameters. Her debut CD as a leader, Santa Habana, was critically acclaimed and nominated for the Cubadisco Awards in 2012. Her new compositions feature her Ashedi Project, consisting of pianist David Virelles and Afro Cuban percussionist Roman Diaz.
Plus: Emcee Ciarra and The IIIVibe Collective
