Roberto Fonseca : 12-13 July

Roberto Fonseca : 12-13 July

Roberto Fonseca is one of the most extraordinary, charismatic young pianists, composers and band leaders to explode from Cuba in recent times. He wowed audiences as a member of Buena Vista Social Club, co-produced Ibrahim Ferrer’s last album with Nick Gold, and his debut album Zamazu was released to global acclaim. An explosive pianist, Fonseca’s dazzling music draws on the traditions of Cuban music though he also brings the lyricism of Herbie Hancock and the drive of McCoy Tyner to his music as well as an unparalleled gift for melody.  Soulful and beguiling, his music transcends artificial definitions such as jazz or Latin but is a vibrant, wondrous contemporary reinvention of the venerable traditions of both musics.
