South American fusion coming to Darlington

The Darlington Arts Center will welcome Cristian Perez and his ensemble for an evening of high energy South American fusion on Saturday, June 4.


Guitarist Cristian Perez (center) is shown with his ensemble, Yana Hristova (flute) and Ethan Foote (bassist).

Perez’s rescheduled performance, originally planned for April, 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

This will be the last show of the 2015-2016 Coffee House Concert Series. Shows will resume in the fall after a summer break.
