Guitarist Omar Tamez and pianist Angelica Sanchez have become Bop Shop favorites. Angie first performed here back in 2004 with her quartet in the Atrium. Omar first performed here at the inaugural concert in the new store in a duo with drummer Harvey Sorgen in 2012. And last year, the two of them performed here with their Fortuna Quartet that included Sorgen and bassist Joe Fonda. It was a memorable concert, free improvisation with ritualistic flavor creating a unique music that transported the audience to another world.
We’re excited to have the duo of Omar and Angie returning for yet another concert. Bruce Lee Gallanter of the Downtown Music Gallery sums their duet album Dias De Sol this way: The music on this disc is haunting, dream-like, floating, unsettling yet somewhat calm. This duo works well together, slowly weaving their lines into an unpredictable tapestry. At times they start heading to the outer regions yet always seems to end up in a familiar raft drifting together. “. It’s also been describes as an improvised approach to Mexican and Latin American folk music. It’s a one of a kind musical experience.
