Yosvani Castañeda – Violinist Extraordinaire, Toronto resident

There’s a nice tribute to Yosvani, who we see with many of the Cuban and Latin bands around town.  Yosvani was once a member of popular Cuban band Bamboleo.  This is on the occasion of Yosvani’s assistance in a charitable event for Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.  From that site:

Originating from the island of Cuba, Yosvani Castañeda was just 7 years old when he first picked up the Violin. Classically trained at the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory in Havana, Yosvani’s talent as a Violinist has taken him around the world. Yosvani has an affinity for bringing together urban and classical sounds, which speaks to his multifaceted skill as a Musician. In his spare time, Yosvani offers private music lessons to children. “I think that one thing missing from today’s generation is live music, I want to inspire young people to pick up an instrument, and show how it can be incorporated into popular genres.”
