Bass-player Hershell Rosario, born on Curaçao and an active local and international performer, is considered one of the best known jazz musicians of the island. He has already played with other local artists on the two earlier editions of the jazz festival. As no other, he is capable of incorporating the characteristic rhythms of his island, and those of the region, in his jazz.
To showcase his international side, Hershell has also invited special guest star and well-known Argentinian guitarist Luis Salinas, who Hershell and a group of local musicians has accompanied both in Venezuela and Costa Rica in recent years, to share the stage with him. A set-up that promises a memorable musical mélange of local and international tastes that the visitors to the third edition of the Curaçao North Sea Jazz festival will be sure to appreciate and enjoy to the fullest.
