Eric Kurimski / Guitar
Felipe Fournier / Cajon
New York’s most sought after guitarist for Afro Peruvian music. In 2002, after years of studying and performing Jazz, he began intense research of Afro Peruvian rhythms with the esteemed guitarist, the maestro Carlos Hayre (Carlos has influenced and modernized the advancement of Afro-Peruvian music from the 1940s through the present day.) Carlos became Eric’s professor/ mentor and has proved to be very important to his musical career.
Now, fusing his knowledge of Jazz with rhythms of Peru and Latin America, Eric has dedicated himself to defining a new sound integrating the Peruvian Cajon (box) as the principal percussion instrument in a Jazz setting. He has performed in renowned venues throughout the United States including, Blue Note, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Jazz Gallery, BAM, SOB’s, Jazz Bakery, and Regatta Bar. He has also performed internationally in Europe, Peru, Mexico, Cuba, Ecuador, and Puerto Rico.
