In a bill which paired two different visions of Latin jazz in the 21st century, Valera opened for Alexis Cuadrado's A Lorca Soundscape project at 92Y Tribeca in downtown New York City. The shows were broadcast on air via WBGO and in an online video webcast at NPR Music. For more information about this series and a full concert archive, visit npr.org/checkoutlive.
