This will be Pérez’s 12th album as a leader. Crisálida comprises two four-part suites: La Muralla (Glass Walls) and Fronteras (Borders).

The recording features his international group called the Global Messengers, made of alumni from the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, of which he’s the founder and artistic director.

Alongside his wife, Chilean vocalist and saxophonist Patricia Zarate, the Global Messengers feature talents from all over the world including Iraqi-Jordanian violinist Layth Sidiq, American vocalist Farayi Male, Greek laouto player Vasilis Kostas, Palestinian cellist Naseem Alatrash and percussionist Tareq Rantisi.

Greek vocalist Eirini Tonrnsaki also makes a guest appearance on the album’s first single, Monopatia (Pathways).
