II Festival Ron Varadero del Bolero: Lázara Cachao & Telva Rojas

  • Music, Latin and world

Time Out says

A concert with piano and voice with an unmistakably Cuban flavour. At the piano you've got Lázara Cachao, daughter of Cachaíto López (Buena Vista Social Club's double bass player) and niece of the legendary Israel 'Cachao'  López (known as the 'inventor of the mambo' and a master of 'danzón' Latin jam sessions). Danzon and transmitter driver download. Lázara Cachao's hands guide us through the rhythmic relief and topography of popular and traditional Cuban music, and she adds personality and character to live up to her family name. Beyond the virtuosity and technical quality, she's bursting with the passion she uses to play the music that to her is life itself. The same can be said for Telva Rojas, possibly the best voice that has managed to keep alive the legacy of the great poet, singer and pianist Ignacio Jacinto Villa, aka 'Bola de Nieve'. It's an irresistible pairing with generational classics of cult and popular Cuban music performed with elegance, care and good taste.
