Cuban Latino Star Hits the Road to Bansko << Back to list of articles
Latino star Raul Paz, born in Cuba, landed in Sofia in a cap and glasses-on manner more appropriate to a tourist than to a celebrity as he is.
Paz, who lives in France, has come here to give the official opening of Jazz Festival Bansko 2006 kicking off with a latino fiesta on Tuesday.
The French-Cuban legend will perform hits of his latest album Revolucion recorded in the studios of Buena Vista Social Club in Havana.
The singing of Raul Paz passioned up by dances of Alfredo Torez will add an exquisite - and extravagant - touch to the ninth edition of the summer jazz festival.
The idea of mixing the two musical styles is not a pioneer whim, organisers said. A number of European festivals have set this model of topical organisation.
The six-day musical event will bring jazz fans from the country and abroad.
