Roberto Fonseca – Cuba 2.0

Ende der weiteren Informationen

On the musical map, Cuba is one thing above all: the home of the great Buena Vista Social Club. To reduce a pianist like Roberto Fonseca to this would be fatal. But it is true: He earned his spurs as the successor of the legendary Rubén Gonzáles with more than 400 concerts worldwide as the pianist of the "Club". Since then, Fonseca has worked as an arranger, producer and musician for many stars of Cuban music, such as Omara Portuondo and Ibrahim Ferrer.

Meanwhile, as a jazz pianist, Fonseca has risen to become a brand of his own on the Cuban music scene. He embodies Cuba on a next musical level, searching for new sounds and connections to other musical styles. And who better than Fonseca, who learned the "Son Cubano" from the greats and now continues it in a cosmopolitan way, with technical precision and a sure sense of melody and rhythm?
