Multi-award winning Cuban trumpet player Yelfris Valdés will be bringing his critically acclaimed and profoundly spiritual new album The World of Eshú Diná: a fusion of soundscapes, jazz and Afro-Cuban traditions, all treated as a sacred ritual where he is the messenger that will take the audience into a safe holistic journey, musically and spiritually. Yelfris became known across the world playing with Sierra Maestra, with which he earned a Grammy nomination. Since his move to London, he has shared the stage with the likes of Yussef Kamaal, Roberto Fonseca and Charlie Hunter. His musical mission is to build bridges between Cuban traditions, jazz and modern sounds.
