Raúl Paz – one of Cuba’s most exciting singer-songwriters will be presenting his latest album, ‘Vidas’, and playing a selection from his previous eleven successful albums. Raúl Paz is regarded as a musical revolutionary for the 21st Century and is part of what is known as “new Cuban music”. His musical style combines this with elements of hip hop, dub and rock into a fusion of Salsa, jazz and electropop. His lyrics sparkle with irony and fine wit, stories telling of life’s experiences full of love, separation, revolutionary drive and banality.
