¡CANDELA! Havana D' Primera llega a Los Ángeles

Prensa local anuncia el concierto timbero (La Opinión)

Havana D Primera en Los Ángeles - Los Angeles Cuban Music Concert - Cuban Music NewsFor tickets click here -- Para boletos oprima aquí 

Hay un nuevo movimiento musical en Cuba, dice Alexander Abreu. Él debe saberlo pues está en el centro de esa revolución musical cubana que esta semana también se escuchará en vivo aquí en Los Ángeles. Es tan novedoso que aun no tiene nombre. Pero su principal impulsor tiene una sugerencia.

Alexander Abreu y HAVANA D' PRIMERA
Tonight - Doors open at 8pm

Club Los Globos 3040 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
Call 323.666.6669

Desde principios del año, la banda inicio una gira mundial que la ha llevado Asunción, Lima, Paris, Londres, Helsinki, Roma, Barcelona y otras ciudades europeas. Este jueves la orquesta de 14 músicos se presenta en Los Globos, un club sobre el bulevar Sunset en la comunidad de Silverlake con una ecléctica cartelera en que destacan actos latinos locales, nacionales e internacionales.

Agregó que cuando se enteró que la banda estaba de gira y planeaba pasar una vez más el por el Sur de California, no podía dejar pasar la oportunidad de amarrarla a Los Globos. "No soy salsero pero me encanta la música del Caribe. El grupo crea una fabuloso ambiente con salsa de mucha elegancia con influencias jazzistas", añade el promotor Ane Uno.

Eso se debe quizá a que el líder de la banda es un consumado trompetista que ha sido comparado con Louis Armstrong por TIMBA.com y otros medios. En Havana D'Primera Abreu canta y toca el instrumento metálico de viento. -- César Arredondo / Especial para La Opinión

Potpourri May 2013

Septeto Santiaguero Video, Buika Tour, Other Midwest US Dates

First up:  Septeto Santiaguero, winner of the Cubadisco 2013 award for Traditional Tropical Music, has posted this video of Que le den candela on their official Youtube channel:

     

Next,  Buika, whose new release La noche más larga was just reviewed here, has the following US Tour dates with Iván Melón Lewis on piano and  Ramon Porrina on percussion:

Wed, June 12, 2013:   Howard Theatre, DC 
Thurs, June 13, 2013:   The Town Hall, NYC
(part of the Blue Note Jazz Festival)
Sat, June 15, 2013:  Old Town School of Folk Music, Chicago, IL (for a WYCC/PBS TV recording to be broadcast as part of the Musicology series). 

Finally, some items of interest to the Midwestern United States:

The Chuchito Valdés Trio is at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago from Thursday May 30-Sunday, June 2, 2013.   Chuchito is the son of Chucho, grandson of Bebo, and a killer pianist in his own right. Guaranteed not to leave you bored. 

Havana d'Primera is coming to Club Azucar in Louisville, KY on June 9.  At this writing, it appears that there may also be an opening set by the Kentucky Salsa All Stars, an emerging local favorite that includes some young Cuban Americans. 

Pablo Menéndez and the Mezcla Jazz All Stars are coming to the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago on Saturday, June 29, 2013.   One of their former vocalists, Angel d'Cuba, who now lives in Chicago and fronts his own group there, is scheduled to join the group for the performance.
