About The Performance
The American composer and accordionist Sam Reider and the Venezuelan cuatro player Jorge Glem were born to different creative traditions, but each has found fertile common ground in the hothouse of cross-cultural collaboration. Glem, a founding member of the Latin Grammy Award-winning C4 Trio, first bonded with Reider over shared musical virtuosity and curiosity, leading the way to a unique repertoire of songs that fuses enduring South-American forms like merengue and joropo with U.S. folk roots and traditional jazz. The title of the duo’s recently released debut LP, Brooklyn Cumanà, pays tribute to both of the players’ respective hometowns. The complex and beautiful fusion music of Glem and Reider’s ever-expanding vision takes center stage for this live performance premiere at the Atrium.
