“Benedikt Hesse CubaNola” celebrate 50 years of Miles Davis Bitches Brew and let New Orleans Funk bang on Cuban Jazz!

For the anniversary of the legendary album Bitches Brew the band plays excerpts of this unique music. In 1969 Miles Davis merged jazz with funk for the first time and integrated electric musical instruments into the previously mostly acoustic music.
The quintet of drummer Benedikt Hesse interprets the repertoire with their own style – a mixture of New Orleans Funk and Latin Jazz.

“They embody the vital pleasure of Cuban music with fiery salsa or rumba sounds.”

In addition, the band presents their latest album ” Gumbombó “:

Yes, there are commonalities between Cuba and New Orleans. Both areas are not only connected by the Gulf of Mexico, but also have an intersection in music: danceable grooves, with characteristic rhythmic figures – called claves – and a deep bow to African culture.

Benedikt Hesse CubaNola overcomes the borders of Latin, Jazz and Funk and musically abolishes 1111 km distance between the two cities.

Set 1: 17:00 to 17:30 / Set 2: 17:45 to 18:15 / Set 3: 18:30 to 19:00
