I was simply blown away” – Stuart Molina

Grand Canyon Music Festival audiences have been wowed by the extraordinary creative artistry of Joe Deninzon for years.This year we are proud to present one of Joe’s collaborative projects, Sweet Plantain. Its members, hailing from the Bronx, New Jersey, and Venezuela, artfully fuse the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised.
