Festival de la Salsa en Cuba 2019

Artist Line-Up

Festival de la Salsa en Cuba 2019

The 2019 Festival de la Salsa en Cuba is only one month away. If you have any opportunity to be in Havana between February 19-24, I recommend you do it! As always the festival is a combination of classes, dance shows, excursions and the fantastic dance nights with concerts by Cuba's top timba bands and the best timba DJs from around the world. There are full pacakges including room and board, as well as just a passport to the VIP section of the nightly concerts, so something for everyone depending on what you are there for.

For those who purchase the package with the excursion, Maykel Blanco himself will take you to visit the music school Amadeo Roldán and afterwards there wil be a lunch at the Museum of Fine Arts. Dance classes will be held by Maykel Fonts, Sylvia Chapelli and Jennyselt Galata and dance shows by Guaracheros de Regla, Componedores de Batea, La FEU and La Giraldilla.

The 2019 edition is also the first to include the participation of a foreign salsero. Jerry Rivera will perform on the 20th, following Haila and Bamboleo. The Cubans love salsa romantica, so expect to find Parque Almendares full.

The Power of Cuban Music

Planning Album and European Tour

The Power of Cuban Music

ENGLISH: The Power of Cuban Music is the brainchild of pianist and director Gabriel Hernandez and vocalist José Gil Piñera (Gilito). The project features nine virtuoso musicians (see below), graduates of the famed Cuban music academies, with a long international trajectory and participation in various festivals, veterans of groups such as the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Cubanismo, Omara Portuondo, Irakere, Issac Delgado, and Paulo F.G. The Power of Cuban Music project brings these musicians together with a repertoire of their own original Latin Jazz pieces as well as a journey through well-known Cuban music with updated contemporary arrangements that highlight the influence of Afro-Cuban rhythms in jazz. 

The repertoire is includes danzón, cha-cha-cha, son, rumba, ballads, Latin jazz and timba. The compositions and arrangements are by Gabriel Hernandez and Alfred Thompson, with Gilito contributing some compositions also arranged by Hernandez and Thompson.

The Power of Cuban Music completed a very successful nine-concert tour of Mexico in the autumn of 2018 and have been invited back for 2019. Other plans for 2019 include a summer tour of Europe and an album for which they are currently selecting the songs. They will record in Havana and will include a number of special guest artist. Check out their EPK below for a taste of what you can expect.
