Deborah Benner is, in addition to being a fine salsa and jazz singer, a classical soloist, an actress (having a recurring role in House Of Cards), and an educator.
Early in her career, she performed with guitarist Charlie Byrd, bassist Keter Betts, swing bands and society orchestras.
Michael Bard studied classical guitar in Italy, has toured extensively as both a sideman and a leader (working with Shahin and Sepehr and touring the Mideast as half of Douze Cordes), recorded as a leader, and toured and recorded with the Latin Rumba/Flamenco group Trio Caliente which also includes his wife Deborah Benner and guitarist Amilcar Cruz.
For this LiveStream from Mar. 28, 2020, Brenner and Bard perform as Dou Caliente, sometimes augmenting their duo with some pre-recorded rhythm tracks.
The outstanding vocalizing of Deborah Benner (who sings in English, Spanish and Portuguese) and the versatile and virtuosic guitar playing of Michael Bard are heard on a wide area of music that includes salsa, flamenco, an unaccompanied guitar solo that starts out with “Malaguena,” and a medley of Brazilian tunes.
The music is both intimate and spirited, a fun way to spend an hour.
