Iván ‘Melón’ Lewis presents:
Introducing...Rubén González

Saturday 25th May

To celebrate the 100th birthday of iconic Cuban pianist Rubén González, we have invited Latin Grammy nominated artist Iván ‘Melón’ Lewis to perform González’ legendary album Introducing…Rubén González from start to finish.

Together with Lilí Martínez and Peruchín, Rubén González is said to have “forged the style of modern Cuban piano playing in the 1940s”.

Between the 1940s and his retirement in the 1980s, he played with Cuba’s most successful acts, including Paulina Álvarez, Arsenio Rodríguez, Orquesta América del 55, Orquesta Riverside and Enrique Jorrín.

In the 1990s, he came out of retirement to play in the revival ensembles Afro-Cuban All Stars and Buena Vista Social Club, also recording solo material and performing live until 2002.
