About the event
The Great Cuban Suite was released in 2021 and nominated for a CubaDisco Award in the same year. The Latin American Songbook album is currently under production at Alberto Puerto Music in Coral Gables, FL.
Cuban American guitarist Alberto Puerto is known for his potent and sensitive interpretations of diverse repertoire.
His artistic inquiry as a musician promotes improvisation and a lustrous freestyle, replete with musical colors and delightful, invigorating ambiances, always sustained by an enthralling interpretive technique, at once making his way in the fusion of classical music with Latin jazz, instrumental music, and Latin American music.
The reaches of Puerto's music, both sonically and conceptually, transcend the musical world to connect sound with other arts, ennobling the stage experience.
Otto Santana is a Cuban percussionist based in Miami. He has participated in more than forty recordings, including the album “Visualízate” by Gente de Zona, winner of the Latin Grammy Award in 2016. Otto founded the Otto Santana Jazz Trio and was part of the Global Cuba Fest 2022 with Jorge Luis Pacheco. He has worked with iconic Cuban music artists, including Isaac Delgado and Alain Perez. His talent and versatility allow him to move in various genres, providing a personal stamp that makes him unique in the competitive scene of Latin percussion.
