Israel’s legendary singer-songwriter David Broza brings a unique Cuban twist to his hit songs through a collaboration with Trio Havana. Band members include: MANUEL ALEJANDRO CARRO aka MANNYA – Cuban-born singer-songwriter and master percussionist with a style firmly rooted in Latin Pop; YUNIEL JIMINEZ “EL GUAJIRO” – master tres guitar player from Santa Clara, Cuba; JORGE BRINGAS – renowned bassist from Havana, Cuba, who played previously with Albita Rodriguez and the late Celia Cruz.
Joining Trio Havana is Israeli flutist ITAI KRISS – dubbed one of the most exciting new flutist-composers on the Cuban music scene, with an eclectic style infused with Jazz, Latin and Middle Eastern sounds. From his whirlwind fingerpicking to Flamenco percussion and rhythms to a signature rock and roll sound, David Broza’s charismatic and energetic performances have delighted audiences throughout the world. Raised in Israel, Spain and England, Broza has performed worldwide since 1977, when his song “Yihye Tov” first hit the airwaves, promoting a message of peace. Broza has been fascinated with Cuban music since he was a teenager listening to Celia Cruz.
Further explorations led him to become absolutely hooked on the Afro-Cuban sound. Introduced by flutist Itai Kriss, Broza first met Trio Havana at a private event in New York and was stunned by their versatility. By the end of the evening they were jamming together and found a special magnetism in the sweeping rhythms. Combining the Cuban sound with Broza’s Spanish guitar and songs sung in Spanish, Hebrew and English proved a rich common ground that connected naturally. Six months after meeting, Broza and Trio Havana began touring the US. The result has been pure magic: every show is a mystery, a dance and romance expressed through pulsing rhythms and sweet melodies, resulting in uplifting, energetic performances that leave audiences delighted and exhilarated.
