St. Patrick's Home of Ottawa Foundation is proud to present, Miguel De Armas, an incredibly talented, Cuban born musician, and Sabor De Cuba, along with dancers from Afro- Cuban Association of Montreal to "A Night at the Tropicana".
"Miguel De Armas is a versatile jazz pianist and composer. He weaves strands of Cuban and American jazz influences in a compellingly eclectic way. Born in Havana, Cuba, Miguel studied at the Conservatory Amadeo Roldan and graduated from the Instituto Superior de Arte with a Bachelor in Cuban Percussion. In 1988, he co-founded the acclaimed Cuban band NG La Banda Orchestra. For over a decade, he toured with this band around the world and preformed at world-class Jazz Festivals such as the North Sea, Montreaux, Nice, Nantes, Normandia, Couleur Cafe, Rio de Janeiro Film Festival, and more.
Miguel has brought his musical talents to the city Ottawa, which he considers his adopted home. His hope is to introduce Canadians to the works of an original Cuban talent whose performances are nothing short of a master class in original Cuban jazz rhythms." - http://www.migueldearmas.com/
