Cuban-born pianist, composer, and Artistic Director of Cuba’s Jazz Plaza Festival in Santiago, Roberto Fonseca dominates the “new Cuban scene” and has toured with the Buena Vista Social Club and Omara Portuondo. His own style lies at the crossroads of jazz, traditional Cuban music, and soul. His first CD ABUC (Cuba spelled backwards) released last fall, is dedicated to the island he still calls home. A kaleidoscope of dancing colors, it incorporates many elements of the island’s traditions, ranging from contradanza, mambo, and cha-cha-cha to danzon, bolero, and even hip-hop.
