Trinidelphia at Nassau Park Pavilion
August 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
West Windsor Arts is proud to present a summer concert series at Nassau Park Pavilion! Our second concert will feature the tropically melodic stylings of Trinidelphia.
Trinidelphia has been pleasing audiences with their distinct combination of Caribbean and American styles for over a decade, after meeting in Philadelphia in 2005. Fusing Trinidadian Soca and Calypso with Latin Jazz, Reggae, Salsa, and American top-40, they have developed a sound all their own. Their unique and rhythmic arrangements of jazz and popular songs cast the steelpan in fresh new light, pushing the stylistic and artistic boundaries of an often type-cast instrument. Fronted by Steel Drummer/Trumpeter Chris Aschman and Lead Vocalist/Percussionist Shawn Hennessey, they are complemented by the dynamic rhythm section of Ian Rafalak on bass and Matt Chenery on drumset/vocals.
Opening the show will be eclectic, contemporary cellist Dan Kassel.
Emotionally provocative and layered in symphonic warmth, Dan Kassel’s solo cello music brings this classical instrument to new heights. Using an acoustic cello, a Boss RC-50 looping station and minimal effects, Dan bridges the gaps between Klezmer and Irish folk, Indian classical and down-tempo electronic music, levity and suspense. His ability to use technology to loop and layer his instrument into expansive tapestries of sound is impressive, but the element that really stands out is the cello’s deep and moving resonance.
Concert is located at the gazebo behind Panera Bread in Nassau Park Pavilion. “Doors” at 5pm. FREE AND FAMILY FRIENDLY!
