Pablo Cardenas is back to perform the best of Gershwin in Cuban style, featuring two amazing special guests the Canadian singers Leif Bradshaw and Shanna Dance.
The richness of George Gershwin’s music makes it ideal to be adapted and mixed with Cuban rhythms, as Gershwin new the importance of Cuban music on the international scene, he travelled to Havana to research and absorb the aspects of Cuban music he wanted to take influence from, creating important pieces like the Cuban Overture.
Pablo Cardenas will recreate Gershwin’s music by adding modern harmonies and Afro Cuban rhythms, making a perfect fusion you don’t want to miss.
Also on the line up, Louis Rudner on bass, (USA), Cyril Lojda on drums, (Czech Republic) and Hector Ramos on congas (Cuba)
