Music By: DELFEAYO MARSALIS
Delfeayo Marsalis is one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Known for his “technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor…” (Leonard Feather, Los Angeles Times), he is “…one of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation.” (Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner.) Born in New Orleans on July 28, 1965, Marsalis was destined to a life in music. After briefly trying bass and drums, in sixth grade I gravitated towards the trombone, which was an extension of my personality. Marsalis attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts high school, was classically trained at the Eastern Music Festival and Tanglewood Institute, and majored in both performance and audio production at the Berklee College of Music.
Art By: Nena Tahil
Having lived in South East Asia, Egypt and America and of Singaporean and Filipino heritage, my multi-cultural background has nurtured my appreciation of differences and my ability to meld them into a harmonious unity. My style is inspired by my favorite artists whose styles are divergent – Mondrian, Chagall and Agam. Silk allows me to create the fusion of modern geometrical designs or contemporary abstract with ethereal imaginations. My abstract creations are tactile, have movement and have an organic feel. Landscapes and human figures on silk are dream-like renditions.
