I’ve been playing classical music since I was 7, and I wanted to take the opportunity to pay tribute to the composers and music that had influenced me so much as a boy growing up in Cuba. I chose a couple of songs that are close to my heart, and then created a couple of my own compositions with my great friends Michael Olivera and Borja Barrueta – two of the greatest drummers I know who I admire greatly. The hope is to express this great style of music and transform it with our experiences and styles of who we are today.
The songs will be released each week during the month of March 2015. Make sure to subscribe to my channel to be the first to see them!
I am in total shock; I’ve just been nominated for my first Grammy. Thank you everyone involved in the creation of “The Invasion Parade” and all of you for your support! Abrazos! Listen here for my nominated song, Guantanamera.
