This session can be streamed on demand now:
Cuban jazz pianist Roberto Fonseca will deliver an exclusive set from his home as part of the Royal Albert Home sessions.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
The Havana-born vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and bandleader first appeared at the Hall with the Buena Vista Social Club® ensemble, as part of a 400-date world tour. His subsequent nine solo projects have included the epic Afro-Cuban album, Zamazu – which spawned the song Llegó Cachaíto, used in the Hollywood film, Hancock – 2012’s GRAMMY-nominated Yo, and extensive tours both as a solo artist and in a trio.
His new release, Yesun, features guests including GRAMMY-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano, lauded French-Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf and rising star Cuban rapper Danay Suarez.
During this special Royal Albert Home online session, expect retro-modern keyboards, electronic beats and AfroCuban rhythms.
