Caramelo de Cuba
As part of its jazz programme, the Auditorio de Tenerife presents the concert of the Caramelo de Cuba Latin Jazz Quartet.
A pianist, percussionist, arranger, composer and music producer, Caramelo de Cuba is considered in Spain the precursor of flamenco-jazz fusion with Cuban music. The international specialised press considers him one of the best Latin jazz pianists in the world.
In this project, Caramelo de Cuba (in quartet format) proposes a journey through almost all the genres and composers of Cuban music, proposing an interpretation that takes inspiration from the contemporary to a deep knowledge of tradition.
Born and trained in Havana, he started with Benny Moré's orchestra and the Conjunto Casino. Talented and versatile, he has recorded and shared the stage with countless musical personalities; from jazz (Deborah J. Carter, Jerry González, Paquito D'Rivera), Cuban music (Celia Cruz, Omara Portuondo) and flamenco (Diego "El Cigala", Enrique Morente, Paco de Lucía, Josemi Carmona).
Internationally renowned, he has been awarded and nominated on several occasions for a Grammy for best Latin jazz pianist and album in the world for The Latin Jazz Corner (2011). In addition, he was nominated by Latin Jazz Corner magazine and the prestigious DownBeat magazine for the best Latin jazz pianist of the year. He won a Grammy with the album Entre 20 Aguas, a tribute to Paco de Lucía, sharing the stage with the greatest international pianists such as Chick Corea, Chucho Valdés and Michael Camilo.
