Part of Snape Proms

The unmistakable music of Cuba, with a new modern sound

One of the world’s great exponents of Cuban music, the fabulously talented former Buena Vista pianist Roberto Fonseca brings his trio to Snape Proms. They deliver the island’s trademark rhythms and melodies infused with Fonseca’s own spirited imagination, music of incandescent energy and laid-back cool propelled by his formidable, ever-creative piano- playing. This is an intoxicating blend of traditional and contemporary Cuban sounds forged by one of today’s most dynamic composer-performers.

‘The sense was that Fonseca has music hard-wired into every cell, pouring out of his body and soul.’
