“THE INVASION PARADE”
“I breathed Cuban music,” says Alfredo Rodriguez of his upbringing in Havana. But since moving to the US in early 2009, “being outside that reality gives me a different perspective. Creating and playing this music has been like finding out who I am, all over again.” On The Invasion Parade, the acclaimed pianist’s new Mack Avenue album co-produced by Quincy Jones, Rodriguez explores his memories of Cuba, the people and the culture he left behind – and finds his new place. “I searched different styles, different rhythms of Cuban music,” the artist explains. “I explored Conga Santiaguera [a rhythm from Santiago, in Eastern Cuba], Afro-Cuban music and also musica guajira [country music]. I’m exploring the roots and searching for my own contribution to Cuban music.”
