Cubana

A special homage for the rich musical tradition of Cuba

A special homage for the rich musical tradition of Cuba combining Afro-Jazz rhythms, new interpretations of folk music with a spotlight on a few Cuban music legends as Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes , along with contemporary music by the celebrated Cuban composers Leo Brouwer, Jorge Martin and Arturo Sandoval. Music and dance have always been a way of life in Cuba. With its mystery, complex political past, exotic culture and music, Cuba has always intrigued American composers and writers like Gershwin, Copland and Hemingway.

composer IGNACIO CERVANTES

This special program brings to the concert stage some fascinating aspects of Latin music from Cuba and its South America neighbors. Some of the pieces are newly arranged for piano trio by Ofer Shelley, pianist of the ensemble.
