The Warm Rhythms of Oriente Return to Hollywood Art Walk Saturday August 19

Experience the
Afro-Cuban-Soul-Jazz of
Oriente!

An explosive celebration of melody, rhythm and soul, ORIENTE 
was formed in the ‘90s by Cuban guitarist and composer Eddy 
Balzola. They debuted at New Orleans’ premier jazz club, 
Snug Harbor, to an audience accustomed to very funky, 
progressive music and Oriente's hard-driving yet melodic 
Afro-Cuban roots innovations hit the spot. That raw and 
organic music scene was an inspiration and continues to 
influence the band’s soulful sound & style, distinguishing 
ORIENTE from any other Latin Jazz group.
