Far Beyond is the gathering of many years of playing and composing by its Chilean born leader Fabian Hevia. The music draws from the rich musical tapestries of South America and the influences of Jazz. Collectively, these great musicians bring a unique vibrancy to the compositions of Fabian Hevia. The overall rhythmic concept of Far Beyond deals with the subtleties of the micro-rhythmic world. The music leans on the folkloric rhythms of Latin America. Its unique essence is descriptive of feeling and depth. This ensemble brings together a wealth of experience across musical genres to the ears of a discerning audience.
