Boleros al Atardecer (Boleros at Sunset) is an evening dedicated to romantic Latin music, from boleros (Latin ballads) to Peruvian Creole songs, cha cha cha, son, and bossa nova. A versatile ensemble of talented Albuquerque musicians, including Jackie Zamora and César Bauvallet, performs some of the most beautiful and nostalgic classics of Latin cultures.
Jackie Zamora was born and raised in Lima, Perú. She began studying with her mother, a former dancer/choreographer and Zarzuela singer, at the age of 13. Upon arrival in the United States at the age of 15, she continued to study choral ensemble singing and was a member of the Western New Mexico Chamber singers and the University of New Mexico Concert Choir. Inspired by her Latin roots, she joined the salsa band Casablanca and began to explore salsa, Latin-jazz and bossa nova idioms. Her 2002 recording with Casablanca, entitled Peregrinos, received the best tropical/salsa song of the year award and the female vocalist of the year award from the New Mexico Hispano Entertainers Association. Jackie has also played with the salsa band Encanto and the Afro-Peruvian band Concepto Tambor.
A graduate of the Amadeo Roldán Conservatory in Havana, César Bauvallet has over 38 years' experience performing in Cuban salsa orchestras. At the age of 17, he began performing nightly in the cabarets of Havana. By his 20s, César was traveling throughout Europe and Latin America with groups such as Manguaré, Orchestra Pacho Alonzo and Grupo Guaicán. Other groups of which he was a member included Orchestra Cubana de Música Moderna and Orchestra del Teatro Sauto. Since 1977, César has also worked steadily as a studio musician in Cuba (EGREM) and more recently in New Mexico. Some of his other musical accomplishments include being chosen by Arturo Sandoval as trombonist for Dizzy Gillespie's All-Star Orchestra (Havana Jazz Festival, 1989) and performing with renowned Puerto Rican cuatro player Yomo Toro (Albuquerque, NM, 1994). In addition to Son Como Son, César performs regularly on trombone, congas and keyboards with a variety of local bands including the jazz ensemble Tetragon, the Caribbean mix band Pandemonium, and the theatrical band A Slice of Life . He is also a member of Tá-Bení, an Afro-Cuban percussion ensemble which specializes in demonstrating the highly complex rhythms of the Batá drums and Rumba.
