The wait is finally over! One of the most widely celebrated trumpet players, Alexander Abreu, and his Grammy-nominated band, Havana D’Primera, will make their live debut at Electric Brixton on Friday, April 12th.
Havana D’Primera, led by trumpet player, songwriter and singer Alexander Abreu have created the soundtrack to Cuban life over the last five years. Abreu is often compared to legends such as Louis Armstrong. Four years ago, he pulled together an ensemble of seasoned musicians– who played alongside some of the best bands of the golden age of contemporary Cuban salsa and timba –to form Havana D’Primera. Concerned with the decline of Afro-Cuban dance music on its home turf, Abreu decided to pick up the standard once carried around the globe by the very bands he had played with, such as Isaac Delgado and Paulito FG y Su Elite. Havana D’Primera is now considered today’s top contemporary Cuban band.
Their first album Hacienda Historia quickly made Alexander Abreu y Havana D’Primera a favorite among Timba fans and gained crossover success in the Salsa world. It seems awaiting fans of their music have been taunted and teased with a few songs released as singles and added to compilation albums over the past year and a half of what their last album was going to be. Their latest album Pasaporte (finally out) is currently a huge international hit worldwide.
Timbageek had the pleasure to meet this amazing band last July in Paris.
We all loved the voice & lyrics of Alexander Abreu, as he is probably the best trumpet player in Cuba. The sound of his trumpet during a solo (Paris) was such, that the ear could almost hear the words of the song he was playing.
