Step into the vibrant world of Damian Quiñones and his funky Nuyorican band, where vintage vinyl meets Afro-Caribbean percussion, twin guitars oozing with soul, and the occasional cuatro strumming in perfect harmony. This musical ensemble takes you on a genre-hopping journey through original compositions and carefully selected covers.
Quiñones, drawing inspiration from the timeless sounds of 60's rock and roll, Nuyorican funk, tropicalia, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms, concocts a musical stew that's nothing short of intoxicating. As a recording artist with four albums under his belt, his latest creation, "Sleight of Hand in the Material Realm," is a sensory delight. During live performances, Damian accompanies his music with mesmerizing hand-drawn stop-image animations, casting an enchanting spell over the audience.
Beyond the stage and studio, Quiñones has ventured into the world of television and film, leaving his mark with compelling soundtracks. His exceptional work on the film "Flood" by Katy Scoggin earned him the prestigious "best score" award at the NYU Short Film Festival in 2013.
But Damian Quiñones isn't just a musical maestro; he's also a dedicated arts educator. He has made a significant impact by collaborating with New York City's public school students and communities, sharing his passion for the arts as an aesthetic arts teaching artist for Lincoln Center Education.
Prepare to be transported into a world where music, art, and culture converge, guided by the talents and creativity of Damian Quiñones y su Conjunto.
