Raul Paz

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


Raul Paz has become one of the pioneers of the new Cuban wave, reinterpreting Cuban music, weaving in hip-hop beats, dub, rock riffs and a groove all of his own. His album Mulata sold 60,000 copies. RevoluciĆ³n takes up where Mulata left off. Raul Paz recorded the new record in Havana at the Egrem studios, where most gemstones of Cuban music are cut, notably those of the Buena Vista Social Club. Don’t be fooled: although he is proud of his roots and all the musical styles that Cuba boasts – mambo, bolero, montuno, guajira, cha-cha-cha etc. – the “French Cuban” caters for neither nostalgia nor folklore. He makes 21st century Cuban music. Raul should be seen live. That’s when Raul “Peace” goes to war. And the whole world surrenders.
