“La musique de Yuvisney Aguilar est un mélange d’Europe et d’Afrique”
Yuvisney Aguilar & “Afro Cuban Jazz Quartet” unfolds the rhythms of black, urban, crossbreed and contemporary Cuban musical culture . Inspired from the wealth of African folkloric rhythms from the Yoruba, Arará, Iyesá and Bantu, cultures, as well as contemporary rhythms such as Tango Congo, Rumba, Timba and Jazz accompanied by vocal choirs (Afro- Cuban chants) that melodically adorn each concert and provoke a constant interaction with the audience.
“PIANGO-PIANGO” in the Afro-Cuban language means: “Step by Step”. A work based on the mixture of Cuban-Creole music with Jazz and dedicated to the legacy that the African ancestor brought to Cuba.
The beautiful songs and the contagious rhythms that came to the island at the beginning of the 19th century and that today are the heritage of the Afro-Cuban culture, are brought to the scene backed by the harmonic base and the new trends of Modern Jazz.
