Havana-born jazz maestro Roberto Fonseca has proved himself time and again to be an artist of prowess and ideas, a musician with a questing jazz sensibility and deep roots in the AfroCuban tradition. Fonseca has been at the forefront of the renaissance in Cuban music, releasing a catalogue of acclaimed solo albums between joining the legendary Buena Vista Social Club, touring with crooner Ibrahim Ferrer (1927 – 2005) then with singer Omara Portuondo. His 2007 album 'Zamazu' proved him a performer/composer in his own right. 2012’s Grammy-nominated 'Yo' featured guests including Fatoumata Diawara, the Malian star with whom Fonseca subsequently embarked on an acclaimed live collaboration.
