Cuban Pianist Chuchito Valdes Returns to Fogartyville/Sarasota
Master of Cuban music Chuchito Valdés returns to Fogartyville in November! Following in the footsteps of his famed father Chucho Valdés and grandfather Bebo Valdés, Chuchito continues the legacy of great piano players from Cuba. Six-time Latin Grammy Nominee and exciting pianist, Chuchito Valdes, will make a return engagement to Sarasota’s Fogartyville club on Thursday November 10, 2022 at 7:00 PM.
With influences of Caribbean rhythms and jazz, Chuchito creates an exciting and energetic blend of spicy music that drives audiences wild. This piano master captivates with his sensitivity and drives excitement with his dynamic band.
Chuchito is recognized as a master of Cuban music including Son, Danzon, Cuban Timba and Guaguanco. He has also extensively studied classical music including harmony and composition. His original compositions and arrangements draw on classical harmonic and structural techniques. In his performances, Chuchito’s music draws on many styles including Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz, Bebop, Danzon, Cha-Cha-Cha, Son Montuno and much more.
Outside food is permitted for this performance. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.
