Sweet Plantain is a dynamic latin-influenced string quartet from NYC but they are quite unusual in that their violinists double on trombone and mandolin. They also bring a wide range of World Music into their performances and original compositions. In this episode we get to hear their arrangement of the classic Brazilian samba “Chega De Saudade” and also some original compositions that feature rap, Swedish fusion and the Cole Porter song "Love For Sale." They have traveled around the world but mostly perform in NYC where they enjoy bringing their music to their communities. Eddie Venegas is my guest who is the violinist/trombonist for the group.
