Glenda del E is the package: a young pianist of excellent Cuban musical heritage, and a York U music graduate… presents classical with energy and control, jazz with dexterity and style, son de Cuba with the genuine tumbao. .. who else in Toronto can put this all together? It’s called a CD Pre-release at Trane Studio, Sunday evening, and features many excellent musicians backing her up.
Eliades: You know him from Wim Wenders movie Buena Vista Social Club, one of Cuba’s favorite country musicians. I like the moniker “The Johnny Cash of Cuba”! Friday and Saturday at the Royal Theatre.
