One of the most extraordinary young pianists to explode from Cuba in recent times, Roberto Fonseca returns to London to wow audiences with his inimitable blend of jazz and Latin.
Drawing on his work with Buena Vista Social Club along with a deep love of jazz, funk and soul, he recharges the Cuban tradition with his stunning stage show. Soulful and beguiling, Fonseca never fails to entertain and his music is simultaneously virtuosic, playful and vibrant.
Roberto Fonseca's highly anticipated new album, Akokan, will be released in early June on ENJA / Montuno Records.
"A fabulously gifted pianist, composer and band leader... a gift for melody that outshines more celebrated peers...one of a new breed who can transcend musical boundaries through sheer quality" (The Guardian)
"An elegant line and an unhurried feel for time and space. Fonseca is a star." (The Independent On Sunday)
"Sensuous, fresh, modern - Roberto Fonseca brings the piano dazzlingly to life" (The Daily Telegraph)
