De Cuba y de Panama


Boarding a ship leaving Panamá for New York at the age of three, Billy Cobham embarked on a voyage to a new world. Five decades later, the legendary drummer returns to his Latin roots accompanied by seven young Cuban musicians treading a shared path of discovery. This album radiates energy and charm: a rich tapestry of song and groove shifting from the delicate to the powerful. It has an engaging dynamic and warmth of feeling created by an inspired musical journey. Billy Cobham is a hugely influential musician, who has put the throb and the pulse into everything from funk to soul to jazz and has played with a list of musicians that reads like a whos who of modern music Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, John McLaughlin and Herbie Hancock to name but a few. He has also been sampled by everyone from Massive Attack to hip hop bands such as NWA. Groundbreaking and contemporary, Asere recreate the passion and feeling of the music they heard around them growing up in Havana. Their music comes from the heart, and they bring the full Cuban experience to the stage with inventive song writing, warmth and spontaneity. Together with Billy they take the subtleties and complexities of Afro-Cuban rhythms to breathtaking new places. Cobham and Asere together explore soul, jazz and funk influences all mixed up with a kicking Latin vibe. Asere offer an unmistakably Cuban perspective with a profound, acoustic sound. Underpinned by Billys incredible drumming, this funky, soulful, and deeply moving album is totally danceable with a polished production and an innovative style.
