Richard moved to Stockholm, Sweden where he  formed a new group called La Jugada, Stockholm's newest contribution to the world timba scene. Richard is the pianist/keyboardist as well as the composer and arranger for the group. He is also working as a freelance musician playing both piano, keyboard and trumpet and has composed and arranged songs for groups in Denmark and Italy. Richard Ortega is an outstanding example of the results of Cuban music education. Mastering several instruments he is also a composer and arranger,  in other words a complete musician. La Jugada released a demo of three song in September 2009 that have been well recieved by DJ in Europe, Canada and South America. You can hear one of the singles, "Manana", on Timba.com  radio. All of the singles are available at the La Jugada MySpace site .
