Roberto Fonseca

Afro-Cuban Jazz | Genre-Bending

The JAI

Havana-born and based pianist Roberto Fonseca honors his deep Afro-Cuban roots while embracing modern music and showcasing what the future of Cuban music can be, thus becoming “one of the most exciting musicians in the new Cuban scene” (BBC Music). Fonseca, who has toured the world’s best venues with Buena Vista Social Club, is known for ripping up the rule book, entwining folkloric sounds with everything from jazz and classical music to rap, funk, reggaeton, and electronica.
