Cubana

A special homage for the rich musical tradition of Cuba
composer IGNACIO CERVANTES

A special homage to the rich musical tradition of Cuba combining Afro-Jazz rhythms, this program includes new interpretations of folk music with a spotlight on Cuban music legends such as Ernesto Lecuona and Ignacio Cervantes , along with contemporary music by 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 such as Gershwin, Copland and Hemingway.

This 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.
