At the end of the second performance, the 101 Brass Band will perform a free concert in the Auditorium's Hall. Both concerts start at 7:30 p.m. in the Chamber Hall.
The Carlos Meneses Trío presents a live repertoire with a selection of works from the three albums released to date.

In addition to presenting the musical content of their latest album "Like one”, thetrio will play songs from the previous albums Sharp Jazz (2020) and “Jazz a.m.” (2021). The Carlos Meneses Trio was formed in 2020, and it is currently formed by Federico Lechner and Daniel González.
Kike Perdomo Quartett presents the latest work, Friendship. Based on original compositions, with a contemporary musical concept and focused on research and the development of new sounds within the world of jazz, this album was recorded in an acoustic format (drums, bass, piano and saxophone) in New York, the place where this musical style was born. The album was subsequently enriched in Tenerife at the 96KMusic studio with several instruments and voices to add a colourful proposal with new textures and sonorous nuances to the final work. The saxophonist Kike Perdomo plays in a quartet format with Nasim López-Palacios Navarro on drums, Ruimán Manuel Martín León on double bass, David Quevedo Fernández on piano and Olga Salud Sáez as a guest vocalist.
After the concert by Kike Perdomo Quartett on Saturday, the Auditorio de Tenerife offers a performance by the 101 Band Brass in its hall with free entry until capacity is reached.
