Esperanza Spalding 2008Born in Santiago de Cuba and raised in a musical family, David Virelles became exposed to jazz through the cassette recordings of Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, and Andrew Hill. He came to Canada at the behest of Jane Bunnett, the Toronto-based reedist who has a track record of identifying promising Cuban-born musicians.

While living in Canada, David began conversing with Steve Coleman, first by email and then by phone, and also got in touch with Henry Threadgill. Funded by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, David made the move to New York to study with Threadgill. He also began to perform with Coleman, along with Mark Turner, Chris Potter, David Binney, Tomasz Stanko, and many others.

David Virelles and Nosotros will perform LIVE at SEEDS in Brooklyn On January 21st for a residency that lasts through January 24th.

Seeds is a a small, multi-functional space in a private home, located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
It is dedicated to help & foster Music and creative Arts.

We look forward to seeing you at the shows!!
