Sweet Plantain Quartet

"What an amazing experience. Blending jazz, Latin and classical styles, this virtuoso quartet brings a freshness and inventiveness to every note they play. The audience was enthralled, and I was simply blown away."

- Stuart Malina, Tony Award Winning Conductor

About This Show

Nobody bridges the gap between generations or musical genres like Sweet Plantain, a refreshingly new string quartet. Artfully fusing the Western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised, their original writing and live shows educate and entertain.

Separately hailing from Venezuela, Argentina, New Jersey, and The Bronx, together these musicians give voice to a sound that is contemporary, multicultural, and very New York. The brainchild violinist/trombonist Eddie Venegas, joins with cellist Leo Grinhauz, violist Orlando Wells and violin/vocals, Joe Denninzon to form the quartet. Members of Sweet Plantain are fuse their classical training with the hip hop, jazz, improv and Latin rhythms in which they were raised, creating a new contemporary and musically exciting sound that captivates both musicians and audiences alike.
