The new generation of musicians would certainly not be the same without the great saxophonist Giovany Arteaga-Valdes. From his humble beginnings in Havana with The Bueno Vista Social Clubs's Omara Portuondo to working and recording with many great musicians such as Jane Bunnett, Giovanni Hidalgo, Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, Florence K, Nathalie Choquette and the list goes on.
The fusion of his love for jazz and the latin music that shaped his life come together in perfect sync to create a sound that will transport you into another world. Giovany's world. In 2011 his performance at Le Festival de Jazz de Québec is recorded and will be launched at the beginning of May. Called The "Coup de Coeur" of the Festival, this first album for Giovany is but only the start!
With his excellent technique, powerful improvisation skills and versatile style, Giovany stands out as one of the rising stars in the international music scene. Don't miss out!
