Havana D’Primera is directed by Alexander Abreu, widely recognized as the greatest trumpeter of his generation. Every musician in the band is an all-star — from pianist Tony Rodríguez to conguero Guillermo del Toro to to corista Enrique “El Gordo” Pérez to trombonist Carlos Álvarez. 

Founded in 2008, Havana D’Primera performs a fascinating rhythmic and musical fusion of Timba, Salsa, Jazz, Funk and Afro-Cuban, and consists of the most significant musicians of today’s Cuban music scene. Following the enormous success of Haciendo Historias (2008), they released their second CD, Pasaporte, in May 2012. Already today it’s considered to be a musical masterpiece and one of the most promising Salsa CD releases of recent years with its title song alone having received 5 million views on YouTube.

GUEST ARTIST: also direct from Cuba, LEONI TORRES, the former lead singer of Charanga Habanera!!!
