LATINA LICKERS

"Liz Allbee (trumpet) from Oakland, Ca. is a major player in the Bay Area's experimental music scene. She is a voracious musician whose work spans many genres, including new music, improvisation, electronic composition, Asian folk and pop, noise, minimalist, free jazz and experimental rock. She has played with a wide array of musicians, including Anthony Braxton, Wadada Leo Smith, Cecil Taylor, Hans Grusel, Birgit Uhler, Alberto Braida, Raed Yassin, Gino Robair and with members of Caroliner, Sun City Girls, and Rova.

Fresh off performing at the renowned High Zero Fest in Baltimore, for her Philadelphia performance she is being joined by buchla master Charles Cohen and the equally genre-defying Katt Hernandez on violin.


Cecilia and Manya are the Latina Lickers. Charles says to expect cool low key electronic ambient sounds. Given the projects we are familiar with (musical and theatrical - ie Moth In Love) I'm not expecting it to be that low key...


Jon Barrios (bass) is one of the most in demand improvisors in Philadelphia right now. Tonight he is performing in a duo with Carlos Santiago (violin), a member of Normal Love who is also at home with the most out there microtonal improvised sounds."
