Roberto Fonseca

“Roberto Fonseca is one of the world’s great pianists and one of the finest of Cuba’s new generation of musicians ” ****Evening Standard

The dazzling musician The New York Times called “a charismatic spark plug of a pianist from Cuba” made his debut at the Havana International Jazz Festival in 1990 when he was 15.

Ten years and several solo albums later, the rousing young jazz pianist joined the internationally acclaimed orchestra of charismatic sonero Ibrahim Ferrer, touring the world and recording and producing his late release “Mi sueño. A bolero Songbook“. Fonseca also played with Buena Vista Social Club™ and recorded and toured with another of its solo stars Omara Portuondo.
