Also on guitar is Fred Malouf, who is a Berklee College of Music graduate and has been playing guitar for over 30 years. He has performed in diverse musical settings with improvisation being the central component.
On hand percussion is Carlos Madrigal, born in northern Mexico, taught himself some Cuban rhythms on the bongos and he later picked up the cajón. Carlos has played in many groups here in the US and in his native Mexico ranging from pop to flamenco, bossa-nova to jazz and a little bit of rock. His favorite musical genres are bossa-nova and nouveau flamenco.
Rounding out the group is Marty Honda on upright bass and electric violin. Marty’s bass and violin bring to the group his wide range of musical influences from numerous jazz artists as well as late 60’s rock groups and classical composers.
