"The sounds, melodies, voices, chords, ultimately the music, must be that necessary vehicle of expression through which we communicate moods, feelings, ideology or even lifestyle. This work is a reflection, the sincerest example of the professional and personal moment that I'm living. True to the belief of let fly the music inside of each of us to take us to unexpected places, we've tried to create a sound space where flows and lives the classical music, jazz or son montuno with Afro-Cuban percussion elements and all together conceived from a contemporary perspective to my historical moment. It's a pleasure to introduce my second album. Enjoy the music of Ayer y hoy."
