Cristian Perez and his ensemble will bring high energy South American fusion to the Darlington Arts Center on Saturday, April 9.

Perez’s performance is part of Darlington’s Coffee House Concert Series. The guitarist will be joined by flutist Yana Hristova and bassist Ethan Foote to present original works with a South American twist, according to a Darlington press release.

Defying all musical labels, Perez, an Argentine guitarist/composer, weaves together genres from throughout the world to reveal the universality of music through his composition and arrangements. His guitar is joined by flute and upright bass to form a hybrid ensemble - equal parts jazz combo, chamber ensemble, and world music band. The group’s quest for beauty takes the listener on an ever-changing journey, past the conventional boundaries of genre and style.

The event will begin with an open microphone at 7:30 p.m. followed by Cristian Perez at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 ($10 for members) and include free coffee, tea, and desserts. BYOB – corkscrew and glasses are provided. Advance purchase is strongly recommended by calling 610-358-3632 or visiting

Other upcoming Coffee House Concerts include the blues/jazz musician Christopher Davis-Shannon Trio on Saturday, May 7. Shows will resume in the fall after a summer break.
