Pausa Art House

JazzBuffalo

Pianist Yan Carlos Artime Perez is traveling the country in hopes of gaining more recognition as a lead man. He's often been behind the scenes. He was a producer of Paoli Mejías' 2005 Latin Grammy nominee album "Mi Tambor" and has collaborated with countless latin jazz musicians. For his first and only shows outside of Miami for the time being, he’s playing Pausa Art House tonight at 7:30 PM and Friday at 8 PM. WBFO’s Nick Lippa spoke with Yan Carlos and his translator.

It’s been a long journey for Pausa Art House co-owner Lazara Martinez who grew up in Cuba before coming to America. Now, her live music venue has become a hot spot for touring musicians. This weekend, Grammy nominated jazz artist Jane Bunnett will be performing with her all-women Cuban group Maqueque.
