On 2013’s The Devil and the Diamond, world fusion masters Matuto spin out 12 deliciously detailed, intricate cultural collisions. The first track alone hits you with elements of sublimated zydeco groove, chicken-pickin’ guitar and Gypsy fiddle. And from there, things get really funky and tricky as the band’s Afro-Cuban foundations really emerge alongside a harmonic delicacy and sophistications that owes more to Brazil.

A legendary live act, Matuto brings it to Unison Arts in New Paltz on Saturday, November 9. The show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $21 in advance, $17 for Unison members; $25 at the door, $21 for members. For more information call (845) 255-1559 or visit https://unisonarts.org.
