X-Alfonso at LUMINATO – free show, Tue Jun 18 9pm, David Pecaut Square

June 18 2013, at David Pecault Square, next to Roy Thomson Hall.  X-Alfonso sings real good for free…

Performing since his mid-teens, Havana-born hip hop and Afro-rock musician and filmmaker X Alfonso began his career playing jazz and fusion while still in school before joining his parents’ group Síntesis. X Alfonso launched his solo career in 1998, releasing five albums that reflect his unique take on modern Cuban sounds, a synthesis of traditional Afro-Cuban and contemporary Cuban music. “Cubans today are a mix of Spanish, African, English, French, Chinese,” explains the Latin Grammy nominee. “I try to reflect all of this as a musician, drawing on different rhythms, melodies and harmonies.”
