It was a welcome surprise when Colombian band Monsieur Periné won the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist last November.
The Latin Recording Academy, after all, usually goes for artists with a more traditionally commercial approach to pop music than the gypsy jazz and swing of Monsieur Periné.
The group rode that momentum into New York on Jan. 18 for a show at SOBs that followed a preview event four days earlier at the Highline Ballroom of Central Park’s Summerstage.
“It’s always very significant for Colombians to take part in the Grammys,” says the band’s singer, Catalina Garcia.
“People here are very interested in our experience and in learning about our story, because Colombia may be our home, but a lot of people still don’t know our music.”
The band formed in 2007, when Garcia met guitarists Santiago Prieto and Nicolas Junca, who had started exploring the gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt and swing.

When Mexican actor Demian Bichir was offered an especially hateful role by director Quentin Tarantino, he loved it.
But while reading the script for Tarantino’s upcoming Western, “The Hateful Eight,” the one-time Oscar nominee, who portrays Bob “The Mexican” in the violent feature, was as shocked as he was intrigued.
“Page by page, I remember going, ‘No way! Ah, f—! What the …? No f—— way! Oh, my goodness,’ ” Bichir recalls.
“My girl was listening in the other room, and she was like, ‘What’s going on?’
“I’m like, ‘I’m reading a Quentin Tarantino script. That’s what happens when you read this type of material.’ ”
Dascha Polanco is feeling pretty golden these days.
Known primarily for channeling convict Dayanara Diaz on “Orange is the New Black,” the Dominican actress recently used the hit Netflix series as a stepping stone to a high-profile Hollywood role — as Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend in the new film, “Joy.”
For Polanco, the fact both projects received a handful of Golden Globe nominations Sunday is a further sign her career is headed in the right direction.
“‘Orange’ has opened many more opportunities for me, such as ‘Joy,’ and ‘Joy’ will open more opportunities for me to have a consistent career,” Polanco, 33, tells Viva.
“The goal here is to be consistent, to be great, and then to also open the door and lend a hand to those that are coming along.”
