Daruma LIVE on KUVO, on the air broadcast on 89.3 FM, on the stream at www.KUVO.org, on the app, and on KUVO’s YouTube and Twitch channels, Thursday, May 23 at 7 p.m.

Daruma is a fresh, new contemporary jazz project featuring original music by some of Denver’s finest young talent. Their sound takes audiences from deep grooves, to intimate ballads, to Coltrane-inspired swing. Daruma reinterprets the jazz aesthetic for the 21st century and crosses it with progressive rock, film music, and neo-soul in a genre-bending original sound.

Members of Daruma are Shane Dähler (drums), Gabriel Mininberg (saxophone), Zach Rich (trombone), Max Moore (piano/Rhodes) and Hunter Roberts (bass). Members of the ensemble have performed with leading voices in contemporary music ranging from Billy Childs, Rufus Reid, and Tia Fuller to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Dave Kikoski, Joe Farnsworth, Maurice Brown, Adam Deitch, and Big Gigantic. They’ve played at notable venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the Blue Note Amsterdam, and Birdland, and have won ASCAP and Downbeat awards. The ensemble will release its debut album on the respected Monk Music label in the spring of 2024.

LIVE performances on KUVO JAZZ are supported by Bonfils Stanton Foundation, Drum City Guitarland, Grace Design Pro Audio, Listen Up, Flesher-Hinton Music in Wheat Ridge, the donors of the Carlos Lando Musician & Event Fund, and KUVO’s Studio Club members.
