From his early days as a junior virtuoso pianist at the Buena Vista Social Club, Roberto Fonseca has been an accomplished and adventurous performer. Previous releases have seen him blend traditional styles with a variety of modern influences. 2012’s ‘7 Rayos’ offered a cocktail of Cuban sounds, classical music, West-African instruments, electronic music and spoken word poetry. He has worked with Baba Sissoko and Fatoumata Diawara in Africa on 2015’s ‘At Home’ album. Most recently, on 2019’s ‘Yesun’ he collaborated with Ibrahim Maalouf and Cuban rap’s rising star Danay Suárez.

His latest album, ‘La Gran Diversión’, is a tribute to Cuban music’s golden era, rejoicing in the wild nights of La Havana and Cabane Cubaine, Paris’ most famous cabaret of the 1930s. Reverting to tradition might be mistaken for a step backwards by Fonseca but this is an album that bursts with vivacity in its takes on traditional styles. The Mambo, Rumba and Bolero are captured with real verve.
