An off-shoot project of the indie salsa band Bio Ritmo, Miramar revives the 1950's & 60s Puerto Rican "Bolero" tradition. Lead by pianist Marlysse Simmons and featuring vocalist Rei Alvarez singing duets with the eloquent Laura Ann Singh of the Brazilian project "Quatro Na Bossa". They perform a mix of original and classic songs with the customary instrumentation of guitar, piano, bass and percussion plus the addition of far-out organ sounds. The majority of the repertoire is sung in Spanish but a portion is also sung in Greek and Portuguese drawing from music of similar international song movements that paralleled the Latin American Bolero revolution. Think after-hour shows in Old San Juan. This music will go great with a bottle of wine by yourself or a slow dance with someone lucky enough.
