Picture of TRIBUTE TO IRAKERE - LIVE IN MARCIAC Chucho Valdés - Lorena's Tango Source

Four decades ago, Chucho Valdes revolutionized Cuba's musical landscape as leader of the jazz ensemble Irakere, whose sound-world and arrangements remain strikingly modern to this day. For forty years, the volcanic energy of the music of Irakere, propelled by dance rhythms and symphonic orchestrations, brought to life a fantasy universe filled with untamed creatures and sounds of mythical drums. Today, at 73, Valdes demonstrates his irrepressible vigor with a re-discovery of original Irakere charts - here entrusted to the young musicians of his new band, the Afro-Cuban Messengers. Not content with reiterating old repertoire, on "Tribute to Irakere - Live in Marciac", the master has reinvented and refashioned those charts into wonderful source material for a new generation of musicians.
