La Tea kicks off Lounge Latin Jazz, stages Argentine play

Written by  Viva Staff

LaTea Theater has long been known for its stage productions — 35 years and counting — but the Lower East Side venue is now expanding its offerings with regular live music performances.

Kicking off the space’s new series, Lounge Latin Jazz, is Edsel Gomez, who has performed with a who’s-who of jazz greats over his 30-year career, including Jack DeJohnette, Don Byron, Richard Bona, Conrad Herwig, Eddie Palmieri, Janis Siegel and The Manhattan Transfer.

Gomez brings his unique brand of Latin Jazz to La Tea on Friday, May 19, at 9 p.m., where he will perform a selection from his wide array of songs, including from his latest album, "Road to Udaipur."

The show is at 9 p.m. at Teatro LaTea in the Clemente Soto Velez Center, 107 Suffolk St. $10.

LaTea, though, goes back to its theater roots on Thursday, May 18, and Friday, May 19, with a production of "Lo que sabe mi voz."

The show, direct from Argentina, is a one-woman performance written by Adriana Tursi and directed by Analía Fedra García, and stars Silvina Muzzanti in a socio-political tale of the first female inmate to be executed in Argentina back in 1860.
