Festival Details - "Neue Grafik and Hammadi Valdés - The Afro-Cuban Jazz Sessions: Vol II"...

London's blooming jazz scene is one of its defining musical strengths; as such, this night aims to provide a bridge between the Latin and Afrolatin musical traditions and the unique, evolving London jazz sound. The festival brings to you an exclusive collaboration/musical conversation directed by Cuban percussion virtuoso Hammadi Valdés (Chucho Valdés), where he and his team of world-renowned Afrocuban folklore percussionists share their musical tradition with UK-based jazz ensemble. The second edition of the Sessions welcomes French pianist Neue Grafik, whose critically acclaimed album Foulden Road is a hymn to the UK jazz sound. French pianist, producer and DJ Fred Bwelle aka Neue Grafik has quickly risen as one of the most promising acts to come out of the new French and European electronic/jazz scene. His sound is best described as eclectic and versatile.

French pianist, producer and DJ Fred Bwelle aka Neue Grafik has quickly risen as one of the most promising acts to come out of the new French and European electronic/jazz scene. His sound is best described as eclectic and versatile.

It’s the product of a mixture of roots and a wide-ranging palette of inspiration. When listening to his music you can hear the sound of Paris (his hometown), its music and cultural legacy, the ethnic sounds of Africa, as well as House, Jazz, Broken Beat and Hip-Hop.

After sold out shows at the Church of Sound and the Elgar Room at Royal Albert Hall, Neue Grafik and his ensemble will be collaborating with Hammadi and his team on the second edition of the Afro-Cuban Jazz Sessions with his quartet.
