Concerto Compay Segundo 25 anni di Buena Vista Social Club
Fortezza Nuova main stage
Grupo Compay Segundo
In collaboration with XLR
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the cinematographic project “Buena Vista Social Club” by Wim Wenders, Thursday, August 3rd, Grupo Compay Segundo will perform on the stage of the Fortezza Nuova in Livorno, presenting their new album Tocar Música tradicional Cubana! “Vivelo”.
Released in October 2022, and for the first time in the history of the Grupo, 8 original tracks will be co-written by Salvador Repilado, son, bassist, and historical musical director of Compay, and one of the rising stars of Cuba Maikel Dinza, who received the Cubadisco (Cuban Music Victory) award. This new work marks a turning point in their career: it is more personal, retains the know-how of Compay’s music, and places Vivelo at the center of contemporary Cuban music, both traditional and modern. By listening to it, the generational clash is a success, and the writing and arrangements beautifully envelop everything.
The summer 2023 tour will be the official presentation of the new album “Vivelo” and the leitmotif for dancing and experiencing live the legendary Cuban musical story.
