Presented by the Jersey Opera House in association with Jazz en Jèrri, immerse yourself in a unique musical experience as Colombian-born percussionist and band leader, Roberto Pla, collaborates with local artist Adria Godfrey for a special performance.

Witness the world premiere of this show as Roberto Pla takes to the stage to showcase the acclaimed music from his own recordings and the mesmerising repertoire of The Roberto Pla Latin Ensemble. This performance marks a historic moment as Roberto Pla makes his debut with the Jersey Opera House.

Operating in a field of his own, Pla has gained a well-deserved reputation as an exceptional musician. Having collaborated with the likes of Carlos Valdés, Alfredo Rodríguez, Chucho Valdés and Adalberto Santiago, Pla is known for assertive, powerhouse performances on timbales. Pla was a founder member of the UK’s first salsa band which makes him a major contributor to the Latin music scene in The United Kingdom.

Under the Stars Festival, Jazz at The Boisdale (Canary Wharf), Ronnie Scotts Club. They have won two LUKAS awards – one for ‘Lifetime Achievement and contribution to the Latino Community in the UK’ in 2012, and for ‘Concert of the year’ in 2014.
