Roberto SOLO Fonseca

Curated by Fatoumata Diawara

Roberto SOLO Fonseca still lives in the heart of his birthplace Havana, which explains why his adaptation of Cuba’s musical heritage remains so refreshingly renegade and immediate. He spawned exciting fusion group Temperamento with saxophone maestro Javier Zalba, performed in the legendary Buena Vista Social Club and was handpicked by Herbie Hancock himself as his touring mate. Fonseca’s solo resumé isn’t too shabby either, with influential Afro-Cuban jazz-masterpiece  Zamazu, the Grammy-nominated Yo and his live album with Fatoumata Diawara, entitled At Home.
