The distance between Kingston, Jamaica and Havana, Cuba is a short 812 kilometres made even shorter through the music of native Jamaican Everton “Pablo” Paul. Members of La Academia will join us direct from Cuba.
Recorded at the Nelson Studio in Havana Cuba, Remembrance is an amazing recast of Bob Marley’s music featuring Everton ‘Pablo’ Paul and a choice group of Havana-based musicians – La Academia – led by Ruy Lopez Nussa and arranged by musical director Roberto Garcia Lopez. The album is an inventive fusion of indigenous contemporary rhythm patterns from Cuba and Jamaica, based on the universal songbook of Bob Marley.
Featured in the “Jamaica To Toronto” project, Everton “Pablo” Paul is known to Toronto audiences as a founding member of The Cougars.
The evening will open with a set by Jay Douglas and The All Stars.
