The Cachao And Cachaito Songbook
Friday 2nd March 19:00-23:00

Two big players in London’s Cuban scene, DJ and percussionist Vince Vella and trumpeter Yelfris Valdés will present a deep excursion into the repertoire of one of the greatest charanga bass players of all time, Cachao, and his nephew Cachaito, of Buena Vista Social Club fame.

Israel López Valdés, better known as Cachao, was one of the most famous Cuban musicians of all time. His influence on Cuban music cannot be overstated, and his international status is such that he even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He won several Grammy awards during the 90s and is best known for his role in creating the mambo, by incorporating African rhythms into the traditional cuban danzón. His nephew, Orlando “Cachaito” López, is an accomplished bassist himself, and is one of the mainstays of the famed Buena Vista Social Club. Between them, they have produced a huge amount of iconic Cuban music.

On double bass will be Davide Mantovani, joiend by Cuban virtuosos Yelfris Valdes, Omar Puente, Grammy award Hammadi Valdes, Michel Castellanos, Rene Alvarez and more!
