Created by the cream of Cuban musicians based in France, Rumbabierta brings popular neighborhoods from Havana and Matanzas la Cuban rumba, motivated by nostalgia and the desire to live in France the rumbas of their native country.
This port music invented by slaves and their descendants is the driving force and inspiration of the group which makes each of their concert a event, where singing, drums, dancing and an expression mingle happy with the passing of time.
The particularity of the project of the collective and masters of the genre, Rumbabierta, is to have introduced the bass to their training. The meeting with the rhythms and traditional rumba instruments, forge a link with the elegant playing and jazzy from bassist Felipe Cabrera.
Rumbabierta brings together on stage masters of traditional Cuban Rumba and musicians from the Afro-Cuban jazz scene.
The group juggles between compositions and traditional pieces, offering a colorful and authentic repertoire. They have already shared the set with renowned artists such as Alfredo Rodriguez, Jerry Gonzales or Anga Diaz, without forgetting their collaboration and record with the jazzman and saxophonist French Julien Lourau!
