Roberto Fonseca

Roberto Fonseca - Yo

In the years since touring with Buena Vista Social Club, thanks to an innovative artistic sense that has never shied away from eclecticism and multiculturalism, Fonseca and his music have become the bridge between the traditional sounds and the new voice of Cuban music.

His new album, Yo - which translates to 'I' or 'me' in his native Spanish - is Fonseca's most daring recording to date. Recorded in a single week in Paris, Yo is a finely crafted blend of traditional acoustic instruments with elements of cutting-edge electronica - a mesmerizing musical alchemy that pays homage to Cuba's African roots while at the same time updating the country's rich musical lineage.
