We’re thrilled to have the Paoli Mejias Quintet make their fiery hot Vashon debut at Open Space!

Carlos Santana‘s conga player, Paoli Mejias, is a Latin Grammy nominee and a distinguished master percussionist from Puerto Rico, ranked among the best in both Latin Jazz and salsa. His charisma and energetic Afro-Caribbean rhythms are notorious for bringing the public to their feet!

As a bandleader, Paoli fuses straight-ahead jazz with African, Mediterranean and Caribbean folkloric rhythms to create a new dimension of Latin Jazz that is global, energetic and modern. Mejias has performed and recorded with a long list of top artists: Carlos Santana, Chick Corea, Marc Anthony, Tito Puente, Luis Enrique, David Sanchez, La India, Seis del Solar, and Eddie Palmieri to name only a few.
The Paoli Mejias Quintet on the Grand Hall stage is bound to be an energetic evening of high octane Latin jazz. 
Presented by Open Space and KNKX. This performance of the Paoli Mejias Quintet in made possible in part by support from Flintworks, LLC.
Doors open at 6:30pm, performance begins at 7:30pm! See you there!
