For as long as Yuri can remember, his home town has always been steeped in music. «You can listen to the salsa even in the hospitals. Not only in the waiting room, but in the operating room as well ».
«My ambition is to bring out music which makes you dance and think. Music which leaves a trace » summarizes Yuri. He has not given up his desire to transmit the values of his own continent, his mission to make the history of his people known, to make the words of the poets heard. And to invent a place where cultures can dialogue and bring mutual enrichment.
Yuri Buenaventura concludes: «One day, Jacques Brel gave up everything to go and live in Polynesia. He was searching for the south. The South, in other words me.»
