Memorias de Cuba
The program for this evening is the sign of the traditional music of Cuba. Although the bandoneon is the instrument of the Argentinean tango, Carel Kraayenhof knows how to forge these wonderful worlds together and combine them in a melancholy mix of African, Latin American and North American music. “It is music that radiates commitment,” says Kraayenhof. “Every instrument, tres, guitar, trumpet, flute, violin, congas, bongos, timbales, maracas, piano or bass, has its own role, they are all equally important. As in a family”. It is now ten years since Carel Kraayenhof at the wedding of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima was able to elicit many a tear with his passionate rendition of Astor Piazzolla’s “Adios Nonino” and became world famous with it.
Lucrecia, on the age of 7 was already a singer and was heavily involved in music both piano and singing lessons. In 1987 she fell into the prices at the local music competition “Joseíto Fernandez”. Lucrecia then joined with the famous local orchestra Anacoana, where she performed vocals and keyboards. Lucrecia has been a guest at the Metropole Orchestra before, during an electrifying performance with the Cuban saxophonist Paquito d’Rivera.
