Ramon Valle 'Boundless Forces'
- Monday 6 June 14:00 - 14:50 (ZIRO)
Latin, classical and jazz merge seamlessly in his music.
For many people, Cuba is a musical pilgrimage, but pianist Ramón Valle (1964) emigrated from his Caribbean homeland to the Netherlands in the late 1990s. Attracted by the liberal European jazz scene, he has been evolving within it ever since. Latin, classical and jazz merge seamlessly in his music. Valle is a painter amongst the pianists. His impressionistic play betrays an inquiring mind with a rich inner world.
Ramón Valle 'Boundless Forces'
Pianist Ramón Valle brings together his Cuban roots, classical background and virtuoso jazz playing in his latest project, Boundless Forces. No limits: rap, classical singing, funk and jazz might seem like an unusual mix, but it's one that delights. Vibrant, compelling and catchy. Magnificent music that proves you can trust Valle’s intuition. Valle will be performing his newest project Boundless Forces on stage Ziro on Monday June 6. He will also be a part of Ping Pong Piano: an adventurous musical meeting between four Cuban star pianists on Sunday June 5.
