Danilo Pérez’s Global Messengers and Children of the Light with John Patitucci & Brian Blade, on March 31st, will play at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Pérez, known as a pianist, composer and social activist, combines his Panamanian roots with elements of Latin American folk music, jazz, European impressionism, African and other musical heritages, demonstrating his belief in music as a multi-dimensional bridge between people. He leads two groups that highlight the expansiveness of his artistry: his nimble trio Children of the Light featuring John Patitucci and Brian Blade and his multinational Global Messengers sextet.
