At True Brew Records, a Cuban and Latin jazz trio called A3, enthralled the crowd with its unique sound this weekend — preserving the pace of modern music with the sophistication of classic jazz.
The band has been teaching at the National College of Arts (NCA) in Lahore as part of an exchange program organised by the Cuban embassy; they started working together three months ago before they moved to Pakistan and have been performing together ever since.
The band’s performance was marked by several modernised classics. The first track was a jazz classic called “Punjab” and then they took a chance on “Caribe” — the song that brought Dominican music to America before making its way to the rest of the world. Apart from this, they also performed songs by Miles Davis, Maria Llosa’s “Paisa No Much” and a Cuban classic called “Chan Chan”.
