There will be no audience except for our own Maui Supah-Star, Kathy “Tita” Collins who will be emceeing the performance, David Reid doing the live stream broadcast and owner John Henry.

I will start the “happy hour” from 5-4:45 pm with a chill acoustic set solo and then joined by guest Tiger Plexiglas T on cajon and then have Rio Ritmo bassist Steve Parkin come and join for the next set of Latin grooves that I’ll set up with my looper and cajones and we hope you will join us at your homes with your own percussion toys or instruments, or dancing feet!!!     Anywhere in the world!

Steve Line will be our special guest joining us on guitar for a couple of numbers!

Big Mahalo to John Henry at the Maui Coffee Attic for providing this outlet for musicians during this unique time in our lives.

Latin Nights at Heritage Hall will be on hold due to the effort in decreasing the spread of the COVID 19 virus pandemic.  We hope that you remain strong and healthy through this time and we so look forward to dancing with you again!!

 

I have the exquisite pleasure of presenting some of my friends on this song I composed entitled “ What You Need”…At such an interesting time in each one of our lives these beloveds all recorded their own super sweet musings and made the assembling of the clips one of the most fun labors of love I have done in a long time!!

In quarantine I have taken the freedom to name my co-conspirators in this daence play “the Quarantinos” they are: Rizca Perkins , Kehaunani Kaauwaii , Stephen Smith , Julia Alexandra Crespo Tiger Tabby, Marchello and Cristina and Touque!!! Mahalo to Lisanna Gabriel for her help as well with the costume of some crazy painter who dropped by!!

It is but a small gesture of my longing for the wonderful friday nights at Heritage Hall where so many lovely smiles adorn the dance floor and my band of brothers in Rio Ritmo get to groove together. I hope everyone is doing well and holding strong…Ever strong and healthy! We will be back dancing again soon!!!

This song is one that wrote itself …and if it touched the heart of one person then the Cosmos is grateful to have made that connection…could be someone I don’t even know really. Yet am grateful to have been in a place to guide it through to her (or him?! lol)

You can stream the performance on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mauicoffeeattic/ on friday afternoon and we can pau hana together on the airwaves.

 @Dr.NatMaui

For fans of the Dr. Nat radio program second saturdays on Manao Hana Hou radio after 12 years I will be taking a sabbatical from the airwaves.  I thank you those of you who encouraged me to continue these years and gave me an audience to play my favorite artists on my favorite radio station.  I hope I will return to the airwaves sometime in the future but a redirection was due and I will focus my energy in other endeavors for a while. Mahalo, Grazie, Gracias, Merci, Obrigado …thank you ….Mana Hana Hou ohana….and you the listener!

 

 

Dr. Nat overtop Washington Square Park at NYU 07/0

Dr. Nat is a vocalist, guitarist, percussionist, dancer, capoeirista, composer, actor, radio dj and producer. Born in Buenos Aires to Chilean and U.S. American parents, Nat’s music reflects his cultural heritage as well. Blends of cross global polyrythmic styles comprise Nat’s original repertoire of compositions. Nat’s extensive travels through the Caribbean and Central and South America have infused his songs with a spicy river of rhythms (birthplace of “Rio Ritmo “) His songs resonate from the Islands with Afro Cuban rumba, timba, and son rhythms, Jamaican reggae and Brazilian sambas and capoeira grooves, as well as lush harmony, Hawaiian-inspired ballads… irresistible dance grooves to hypnotic lullabies. They take the listener on a voyage into the world of sound and rhythm with Chilean charangos, Brazilian berimbaus and Cuban Tres all woven together with Nat’s dynamic tenor vocals. A healer, his themes reflect upon this life’s journey and his love for the Great Mystery. They are commentary on healing, self-discovery, consciousness and love. His songs express the joy of this journey through insightful and inspiring, sometimes humorous and bluesy lyrics. Ultimately, Nat’s Doctor is the music which transmits via universal translation- Aloha.

RIO RITMO

Dr. Nat performs with his 5 piece band, Rio Ritmo, on Maui, Hawaii. The band was formed by Dr. Nat in the summer of 1998. With Rio Ritmo, Dr. Nat sings primarily Afro Latin and Brazilian dance music in Spanish, Portuguese and English. The rhythmic styles include Salsa, Son, Latin Pop, Rumba, Merengue, Cumbia, Boogaloo, 6/8, Cha Cha, Bolero, Gypsy rumba, Samba, Samba reggae, Bossa Nova and the newer Cuban salsa style called “Timba” fusing funk, Afro-cuban, jazz and hip hop elements into the salsa.

The Rio Ritmo band can and will play other genre songs pending the event. The other styles include Reggae, Jazz, Pop rock and Contemporary.

Dr. Nat will no longer be deejaying Manao Hana Hou radio second Saturdays of each month. After deejaying with Manao Radio for about 12 years a sabbatical was taken.

Note: to date Dr. Nat and Rio Ritmo has the longest run in the Casanova’s history having played consecutive Fridays beginning in 1998 and running through 2003 and has played the most total number of performances in the history of the club for any band.
