v Roberto Fonseca « Abuc » Roberto Fonseca ( Piano, Key, Voice) Ramses ” Dinamite” Rodriguez (Drums) Adel Gonzalez (Percussion) Yandy Martinez (Bass) Javier Zalba (Sax, Flute, Clarinet) Jimmy Jenks (Sax) Matthew Simon (trumpet) Ucha (Vocal) Étoile du jazz cubain à la quarantaine (il est né à La Havane en 1975), neuf albums à son actif, l’ex-pianiste du Buena Vista Social Club est l’un des héros de la nouvelle musica habanera. Prodige des claviers et de la percussion (il a débuté comme batteur), Roberto Fonseca suit de longues études musicales à La Havane. C’est la rencontre avec le saxophoniste Javier Zalba du groupe Irakere qui inspire Fonseca dans son écoute alternative de Keith Jarrett ou Herbie Hancock et des rythmes traditionnels. Associant bientôt cette richesse percussive cubaine au hip hop ou à la drum’n’bass, mêlant les racines africaines de la Santeria à la musique classique et au jazz, Roberto Fonseca est aujourd’hui considéré comme l’une des grandes figures du latin jazz, un héritier potentiel de Chucho Valdes.
