Pavel Polanco-Safadit in Carmel. 

In another of their "Live at the Center" livestream concerts, The Center for the Performing Arts featured Pavel Polanco-Safadit this past weekend. A native of the Dominican Republic and better know as just Pavel, he brought his band Direct Contact to the beautiful Palladium in Carmel, performing all original music throughout the hour long set. In addition to Pavel and the wonderful vocalist Leah Crane, the band featured several of Indy's great jazz and classical musicians including Steve Dokken on bass, Matt McGraw on drums, Gerardo Becerra on congas, Freddie Mendoza on trombone, David Allee on trumpet and Rob Dixon on tenor saxophone.
