Alfredo Rodriguez

& Nbsp; Pianist revealed by Quincy Jones, combines in his third opus "Tocororo" musicality and energy, while opening up to world music. The Tocororo is a bird that dies of sadness if trapped. It reflects not only the desire but the need for freedom. Just as the national bird of Cuba, Alfredo Rodriguez continues his quest for freedom and cultural diversity on this album by inviting artists such as Richard Bona, Ibrahim Maalouf, the Ibeyi duo Antonio Lizana. Culminating voices so, Cuban pianist offers us a cultural kaleidoscope. Inspired by Jean Sébastien Bach, Eliseo Grenet or Astor Piazzolla, the musician always pushes the boundaries of his music keeping its Cuban roots.,fr
