Ever present in today’s popular music, Cuban music, dance, and culture remain dominant influences in the international mainstream. Proyecto Iré brings front and centre the Afro-Cuban roots that inform countless sounds and styles including salsa, timba and cha cha cha.
Renowned pianist, writer, composer, musical director and arranger Yoel Diez and celebrated vocalist Oscar Fuentes have developed a vast repertoire of original compositions and Cuban favourites using key Afro-Cuban instrumentation: tambores and bata, adapting the rhythms of the past into the sounds of today.
Taking centre stage, Oscar’s velvety voice and entrancing stage presence transform every melody into a delight for the senses. This artistic collaboration combines the two artists’ extensive knowledge and experience to share the rhythmical richness of their native Cuba.
The must-see event allows the all present to witness Afro-Cuban traditions, dance and chants and to experience the “ahi na ma” stirring up the Cuban heart and soul in all of us.
