Roberto Fonseca

Music |

Starts 8pm | Tickets £18.50 | Theatre

Roberto Fonseca, born in 1975 in Havana, Cuba, has established himself as one of the most gifted — and most popular — pianists of his generation, an artist of prowess and ideas, a musician with a questing jazz sensibility and deep roots in the AfroCuban tradition. After making his name replacing Ruben González in the legendary Buena Vista Social Club™, and after his Grammy © nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album, Roberto Fonseca has come to incarnate the meeting between jazz with the music of Cuba, both today and yesterday, and also its African roots. A phenomenal live performer, Roberto Fonseca is also an artist who is popular with audiences the world over. His 9th album YESUN was released in 2019 with Fonseca accompanied by his regular trio and guest appearances by Ibrahim Malouf.

YESUN was released in 2019. “Yesun is the album I have always wanted to make. All my influences are here. Jazz, classical, funk, reggaeton, electronics. All the sounds and vibes that make me who I am.”
It features guests Ibrahim Maalouf and Joe Lovano. Plus Cuban singers Danay Suarez and Mercedes Cortés.
