Roberto Fonseca - Jazz in Marciac

Roberto Fonseca; Roberto Fonseca piano, claviers; Joe Lovano saxophone; Yandy Martinez contrebasse, basse; Ruly Herrera batterie; Andres Coayo Batista percussions; Omara Portuondo voix; Mayra Andrade voix; Rossio Jimenez Blanco chœur; Like all musicians born in Cuba and having grown-up in Havana, Roberto Fonseca came out of school ready for work. This multi-disciplinary aptitude enabled numerous projects and encounters. His contribution to Latin music was to have extended his roots into contemporary expression, often with instrumentation closer to that of modern jazz, and this, whilst not losing one ounce of poetry. Because it really is this capacity to make his public dream which characterises this composer/singer/arranger that his female admirers recognise from afar because of the hat which never leaves him and close up by the harmonious lines of his face. Adding on successes in Marciac like so many pearls on his musical necklace, Roberto Fonseca could almost stake claim to having the status of an event organiser. Using ingredients which guarantee his artistic longevity in the domain of Afrocubanism, he put on stage a new group of which the guests are Omara Portuondo, Mayra Andrade, Joe Lovano and an orchestra of pupils from the conservatoires of the Occitanie Region, conducted by Jean-Pierre Peyrebelle.
