Roberto Fonseca + Ayanna : 26 March

 

The fully-fledged Buena Vista Social Club prodigy leads a new generation of Cuban artists on a journey that weaves in and out of the island’s traditional music, picking up jazz, classical, and Afro-Cuban influences along the way to create an astonishingly original musical landscape.

Roberto Fonseca + Ayanna 26 March 2012 / 19:30

Barbican Hall

Tickets: £10 – 25

His new album YO – due for release next year – looks back to Cuba’s African roots while striking forwards with electronic elements, red-hot gooves and sultry lyricism that effortlessly updates the Cuban jazz lineage.

Opening for Roberto on this Black Routes tour is Ayanna, the first non-American to win the legendary Amateur Night Live at the Harlem Apollo Theatre, whose beguiling vocals skip and swing over intimate, honey-sweet cello. Her music was recently celebrated in an evening devoted to her work at the Kings Place Festival in London. Earlier this year she was commissioned to write a new piece for the Bath Festival, following her first UK tour last year and residencies at Wigmore Hall and Aldeburgh. She’s just finished a UK tour with Natty and recording in New York with Kronos Quartet, which neatly captures her full range.
