Miguel de Armas has been making a name for himself in the Ottawa jazz scene since he moved to the Capital from his native Cuba just over a year ago.  In Cuba Miguel enjoyed something akin to star-status! In 1988, he co-founded the acclaimed Cuban band NG La Banda Orchestra with other prestigious Cuban musicians. For over a decade, he toured with this band around the world and performed at many prestigious events. He has recorded over 50 albums, and collaborated with renowned Cuban artists such as Chucho Valdes e Irakere, Los Van Van, Pablo Milanés and Compay Segundo. The Miguel de Armas Trio is filled out with the superb and inventive bass playing of Marc Decho and exciting percussion from Arien Villegas.  http://www.migueldearmas.com/
