Havana Abuelos back to Palace Hall

Bucharest will host what is believed to be last concert in Romania by Live From Buena Vista: The Havana Lounge, on 12 February at the Palace Hall. The concert, which will bring together Teresa Garcia Caturla and Julio Alberto Fernandez, is part of the World Music Masters series of events. This is the fourth time the Live From Buena Vista: The Havana Lounge are performing in Romania, after sold-out concerts in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Since the 1930s, the Buena Vista district of Havana has been a synonym for a focal point of Cuban musical tradition. There are a few traditional compositions which deal with this district and its inspiring effect on the musicians of past generations.


Live from Buena Vista – the Havana Lounge – gives an insight into the wide range of the traditional styles which came together again in a kind of melting pot in and around Buena Vista.


Chan Chan as well as Son classics and other new compositions yet unknown in Europe are performed in a large original line up. The Havana Lounge comes as union of top stars of Havana’s traditional music scene, many of them are also well known in Europe already: singer Julio Alberto Fernandez who, together with Compay Segundo, sang the title “Amor de Loca Juventud” on the famous album and worked with. With Julienne Oviedo participates the youngest member of “Buena Vista Social Club“ and a “wizard” of Percussions and Timbales.


Teresa Garcia Caturla is the one and only woman from the “Afro Cuban All Stars” brim-full of this special esprit between a sparkling flame and a tender smelling flower. She also worked with Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Secundo and many other stars of the Cuban music scene for many years. In addition there are Yanko Pizaco, trumpeter from Wim Wenders’ world-famous music film, Tomas Ramos “El Panga”, percussionist, as well as Rodolfo “Peruchin” Argudin, pianist of the legendary “Tropicana”. Laura Coroianu, Emagic CEO, said: “It is a real joy to have with us for a fourth time the members of Live From Buena Vista: The Havana Lounge, especially since it is possible this may be the group’s last international tour.”
