Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes come together in a collaboration entitled “Heritage of the Invisible” – Panama meets Brooklyn.

Tcheser and Aquiles are an energetic duo that together transform their life experiences, rhythm and harmonies into impromptu performances that take the audience on a unique journey. Tcheser, a drummer from NY who grew up submerged in Brooklyn's "Afro-centric" culture. Here he was introduced to an abundance of music (Rock, House, Hip-Hop etc). At an early age Tcheser played djembe with African Drum ensembles; this is where he was introduced to the drum-set and concepts pertaining to jazz.Aquiles is a Panamanian trumpeter whose Grandfather was an accomplished cellist. Following in his foot steps, Aquiles always felt connected to music as expression. Growing up listening to his fathers music collection, his sound reflects the Panamanian culture of folkloric music, salsa and reggae. He was exposed to jazz in his late teens.
