Di eVano String Quartet

Irais B. Hierrezuelo - Bass (Dominican Republic)
Mayreni Morel - Violin (Dominican Republic)
Phakamani Pega - Violin (South Africa)
Kira Meade - Cello (United States)

Di eVano is an exciting string quartet that captures a unique blend of music and cultures within each amazing performance. Features touches of the Caribbean, Latin America, and Africa.

Embracing in a tight framework that marries classical complexity with the freedom and playfulness of traditional Latin Jazz, Rumba, Danzon, Cha Cha Cha. Di eVano string quartet was created by bassist Irais B. Hierrezuelo in 2006, The Group performs pieces ranging in time period, place of origin, and style, from J.S. Bach to Emiliano Salvador, Buena Vista Social Club, Chick Corea.

With its endless array of possibilities, Di eVano can bring a top-notch performance to any venue, whether it be a small jazz club, or a concert hall stage show. Di eVano features four talented and diverse musicians. Mayreni Morel from Dominican Republic, plays violin bringing an intense Latin flavor to her melodies on tango, rumba and salsa pieces, among others. Phakamani Pega from South Africa also plays violin where he roots the group strongly in African rhythms and harmonies. Kira Meade, a cellist from New York, contributes both professional classical precision and passionate improvisational ability. Finally, Irais B. Hierrezuelo, the bassist and founder, anchors the group's sound and rhythm worth his deeply ingrained Cuban roots, while constantly pushing the group into a new musical exploration with his wide, eclectic choice of material and arrangements.

In 2006, Di eVano headlined at Ryles Jazz Club's "World Wednesdays," a weekly showcase of the best world music in Boston. The group was commemorated for the facinating show they performed. Di eVano looks forward to returning to Ryles once again with its unique sound. For an eclectic, exciting string quartet the likes of which you've never heard before.
