GIG REVIEW: Gilles Peterson & Rob Fonseca; Havana Cultura New Cuba Sound July 6 @ Barbican, London

Treated to free rum cocktails and a hot taste of some of Cuba’s finest musical talents all thanks to Havana Cultura presented by Gilles Peterson at the incredible Barbican building, London. After your gracious writer spent three days on a techno stomp out in the wilderness of Lancashire (see Beatherder review for all the gory details), this was just the ticket on the train to the end of the perfect weekend. Mr Peterson and his crew offered a sumptuous mix of Cuban Hip hop, soul, jazz and pumped up house beats to the delight of the crowd who they had bopping in the aisles by the end of the evening. I have to give a special shout out also to one Mr Roberto Fonseca who is for me one of the most talented piano players that I've ever bore witness too. Managing to seamlessly fleet between musical genres and pounding those keys with an organic ease that was as natural as drawing breath. Top quality evening with top quality music in a top quality venue.
