Aruán Ortiz  brings together the sounds of be-bop, straight-ahead jazz, and traditional Cuban rhythms. Aruán’s ability to subtly incorporate world music elements into avante garde jazz makes his sense of creativity unique and recognizable in different styles.

The Music & Architecture Series, curated by Aruán Ortiz is a musical re-interpretation of concepts and motifs from iconic architectural works, and conveys their visual impact through improvised music. These concepts include fractals in African architecture, reflection in Middle Eastern architectural concepts, arabesques, and mysticism in Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, etc. This is a unique musical series in jazz and improvised music, and has featured some of the most forward-thinking, creative musicians on the NY scene today. This series are presented by Revival Music Group.
