4y ago


New Frequencies: Cuba Afro-Rock Revoluxion Aug 20 & 21, 2010, YBCA Forum Presented in Partnership with La Nina Productions Equis Alfonso & special guests Osamu with Pedrito Calvo Performance & Dance Party X Alfonso (Equis) is one of Cuba's most exciting young artists and, by Havana standards, he's a superstar. His music, a mix of hip hop, rumba, funk and rock, is an excellent indication of what Afro-Cuban fusion has come to mean. Cuba Afro-Rock Revoluxion is a musical multi-media exploration of this unique Afro-Cuban blend and its influence on contemporary Cuban culture. Opening the concert is Osamu, widely recognized as one of Havana's leading rockeros with his hit songs "Chaca-Chaca en la Azotea", "Ven a mi Vida" and his delicious mix of Blues, Alternative Rock, Nueva Trova and Timba. Legendary singer Pedrito Calvo, formerly of Los Van Van, joins Osamu for his signature hits "La Candela", "Sanduguera" and more.
