cubanismo

 

>> NEW SOUND MOVIMIENTO

¡Cubanismo! is back. After a long hiatus, living in a new country and some moments of reflection for founder Jesus Alemany to find the new direction of the project – the maestro of the trumpet is back alongside his 14-piece Cuban orchestra.  As U.S. and Cuba relations thaw, the Cuban Son coming from this expert collective has never been hotter.

 

Alemany, identified as a musical prodigy during his childhood in Havana, has personally sought out fellow Cuban expatriates: Jose Pinera and Jorge Luis “Rojitas” Gonzales (vocals),  Timbale phenom – Antonio “Pacha” Portuondo, Trombonist Daniel Lopez, Arys Montenegro (bongos), Gabriel “Gabo” Hernandez on piano – along with several other fresh faces to bring ¡Cubanismo! in the “hear” and now.

 

As an intro (and in some cases a re-introduction) to what ¡Cubanismo! is: The expression ¡Cubanismo! designates something specifically Cuban, or unique to the island and not common to the general Spanish culture of Latin America.  Absolutely different from the genre known as Latin Jazz, ¡Cubanismo! features music steeped in dance and what is essentially known as the Cuban Son.  This genre is the foundation of other forms of world popular music ranging from African Soukous to Salsa created in the United States. Mixing vintage Danzon, Rumba, Cha-Cha, ¡Cubanismo! brings back the descarga (jam) tradition in a fresh and grand format.

 

¡Cubanismo! embarks on this mini-tour as a precursor to future projects that will keep the collective busy during the upcoming years. In 2016 a new album, full fledge tour in additional key markets in the United States and much more are in store.  Check out Jesus and company as the mighty¡Cubanismo! rev up their collective engines and bring music that is as every bit contemporary as it is vintage.
