an intimate gallery concert: only 50 seats

In conjunction with our current exhibition “Building Stories: Alternative Storytelling,” the Jaffe Center for Book Arts is pleased to welcome the eclectic Miami trio DJ Ma Non Troppo for an afternoon concert of alternative storytelling through sound and music. In Italian, the language of Western music, DJ Ma Non Troppo would translate to “DJ but not too much.” Artists Michael Gil, Arsenio Diaz, and Manuel Clua created the DJ Ma Non Troppo trio after several years of friendship and music. The goal was to explore live performance possibilities for Gil's interactive lectures and workshops about ancestral musical instruments and their potential for use in contemporary music. But the result is mesmerizing: a fresh and ludic blend of electronic music, loop station pedals, guitar synthesizers, and iPads, with organic timbres such as didgeridoo from Australia, Afro-Brazilian berimbau, jaw harps, sitar from India, kalimba and talking drum from Africa, and beyond. DJ Ma Non Troppo's music ranges from the most subtle and relaxing sounds to very energetic contemporary electronica influenced by blues, rock, Afro-Cuban, and world music.


Only 50 seats are available for this special concert. To ensure your place, reserve seats by contacting JCBA Director John Cutrone at
