Raúl Rodríguez

Pianist Jordi Sabatés (10.30pm) pays tribute to Cuban singer, songwriter and pianist Ignacio Villa ('Bola de Nieve'), an icon whose music seduced great artists of the 20th century such as singer Edith Piaf and poet Pablo Neruda. The Ballet de Cámara de Madrid from the Institute of Theatre Arts and Danza Alicia Alonso will perform a choreography created for the occasion by Ioshinobu Navarro Sanli. The other part of the night stars musician, producer and anthropologist Raúl Rodríguez (12.30am), who will present his first and award-winning solo album, 'Razón de son', the end result of some 20 years of research into Andalusian popular music and into links established with other rhythms, especially those from the USA.
