Changüí - The Sound of Guantanamo
Producer of critically acclaimed collection of traditional changüí music from Guantanamo Province, Cuba. Looking for agent.
Gianluca spent two and a half years in the Guantanamo Region of Eastern Cuba immersed in traditional changüí culture. The result was the first ever comprehensive collection including a book (with introduction by latin jazz pioneer Arturo O’Farrill) and 3 CD collection of on-location recordings. The box set - released in 2021 and co-produced with 4 time Grammy-winner Steve Rosenthal (Alan Lomax & Erroll Garner) - has entered many “Best Of 2021” listings in international publications, received 4 and 5 star reviews in international publications from MOJO, Songlines, Afropop, No Depression, and been reported on by the BBC, NPR and the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company). It is now time to tour some of these amazing musicians that will get your feet-a-tapping and hands-a-clapping.
