CHUCHO VALDÉS & PAQUITO D’RIVERA Réunion – Sani Festival 2022 – Jazz on the Hill at Sani Resort
July 9 @ 21:30 - 23:30 EEST€25
Two legends of Afro-Cuban music, Chucho Valdés and Paquito D’Rivera reunite after 40 years and raise the curtain of this year’s celebratory Sani Festival, with Sani Hill being one of the few stops of their international tour! Chucho Valdés, pianist, composer and founder of the group Irakere –one of the most transcendental groups in the history of the Caribbean Island– and Paquito D’Rivera, saxophonist, composer and clarinetist, count decades of friendship and musical companionship between them. Together they developed most of their activities in the Musical Theater of Havana and in the Orquesta Cubana de Música Moderna, which Paquito conducted before forming Irakere in 1973, but they followed separate paths in 1980 after Paquito D’Rivera was forced into exile and moved to New York. Separately, they have received more than 25 Grammys and Latin Grammys, among many other prominent distinctions. Now they are joining forces again, in a live performance that will include milestone hits of Latin jazz music, classic Latin-American repertoire, alongside new compositions from their latest album I Missed You Too. The two bona fide living legends are ready to mix the Caribbean rhythm of their music, with the Mediterranean breeze of Sani Hill, in a concert that will mark the start of Sani Festival’s 30 years’ celebration!
