Internationally acclaimed Cuban violinist Omar Puente has performed around the globe. Throughout his career he has supported and shared the stage with a whole host of other stars such as Tito Puente, John Williams, Nigel Kennedy, Courtney Pine and Wynton Marsalis to name a few, along the way. Now as he returns to the NCEM, Omar joins forces with long-time collaborator pianist and composer Alex Wilson, another award-winning artist, for a special collaboration combining their intense musical energies alongside bass virtuoso Dimitris Christopoulos and Venezuelan percussion powerhouse Edwin Sanz.

Since appearing together on a joint billing at Glastonbury Festival in 2022, the Quartet have amazed audiences up and down the country. Each show promising to take the listener on a joyful, whirlwind journey of musical exuberance.
