Dallas String Quartet Releases New Song “Sabor” featuring Jesús Molina
- Dallas based international ensemble Dallas String Quartet teamed up with Colombian jazz pianist Jesús Molina to release a new song “Sabor”.
The song is their first single of 2021. It was composed by Drew Zaremba. The group has already filmed the music video for the song, which will be premiered soon.
The track features Latin Jazz and Salsa music with the orchestration.
“When Ion approached me about a brand new Dallas String Quartet piece, he mentioned he would love something with a Cuban, Latin Jazz flavor. Immediately, I went to the piano and started workshopping some ideas. Ion and I worked hard for the next several months tinkering, refining, and distilling the song until it was where it is today!” composer Drew Zaremba said. “It was a great honor and privilege to work with some of the Colombian percussionists who really helped make 'Sabor' feel authentic and wonderful.”
- “We knew we wanted the strings to be the primary feature. The orchestration was dictated by the music. Since we used a Latin vibe, we had to have some instruments that are not normally in our regular orchestration,” Dallas String Quartet founder Ion Zanca said. “The big band feels like the good old days are back where you can make music with friends again. Everybody misses being out and hanging out with friends.”
