For more than a half-century, the embrace between Cuba and the United States has been subject to an odd dance of politics, including a still-standing embargo. Nevertheless, the bond between the two nations is deep and strong as ever, expressed most forcefully through the dance of culture – especially music.
Cuban pianist and composer, Harold López-Nussa, visits the Steel City for the first time, and with a new record, Un Día Cualquiera. López-Nussa’s music reflects the full range and richness of Cuban music, with its distinctive combination of classical, folkloric, and popular elements, as well as its embrace of jazz improvisation and interaction.
The Harold López-Nussa Trio will perform live on Friday, September 7 at 7:30 pm at MCG Jazz, located at 1815 Metropolitan Street. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Harold López-Nussa Trio event page.
