Vail Valley band dives into world music
Special to the Daily
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – A product of various open mic collaborations throughout the Vail Valley, Nev Eluna is a group that grew organically, with a world sound that speaks to the fusion of its diverse cast of talented musicians.
When Fernando Palomo approached Rebecca Rehorst about playing open mic, Rehorst immediately upped the ante. “Who else do you know,” was her response, pushing to make a more diverse sound filled with more players to fill out the bill.
Rehorst explained her in reasons for investing in this ensemble: “It’s broadened my musical horizons.”
From that point, after a successful open mic at Yeti’s Grind in Eagle, Palomo and Rehorst expanded the sound with more players. They brought in Kayte Kelly on vocals to give the band a sultry jazz current and flute player Zach Sirotkin.
The name, Nev Eluna, is Italian, in case you were wondering, and it means “snow and moon.” And if it’s down-tempo jazz world fusion that you’re looking for, the band plays Friday night at Loaded Joe’s in Avon.
