Roberto Fonseca “La Gran Diversión”

He is one of the best artists of the glorious Cuban piano school. Roberto Fonseca (pianist, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer) followed his family’s footsteps and started playing the piano as a child. He has toured with Buena Vista Social Club and has long collaborated with Omara Portuondo, Rubén Gonzales and Ibrahim Ferrer. After a formation phase, Fonseca left Cuba to look for his sound. He found it in a mix of popular traditions, jazz, classical music, Afro-Cuban rhythms and others along a line of music that starts from Cuba and interfaces with the world. His most recent project, “La Gran Diversión”, is a musically bursting show that evokes the glorious past of the dance halls of the roaring years of Cuban music, including the Cabane Cubaine, the most famous Parisian cabaret of the 1930s. Rumba, mambo and bolero were the soundtrack of those wild nights.

Starting from Cuba, that sound invaded the world, from New York to the European capitals. Cuban artists like Fonseca preserve and renew this sound by combining it with modern genres.
