“Live at the BIMhuis, Amsterdam” by Estrella Acosta

Esquina 25 brings together top international musicians from Cuba, Venezuela, Germany, the USA and the Netherlands. They create an original view of Cuban music in a wide spectrum of styles - son, bolero, rumba, guajira, trova, Afro-Cuban jazz and Lucumí chants, performed with plenty of room for creativity and improvisation, and with respect for the tradition. The music of Esquina 25 pays tribute to the cultural variety that characterizes a Havana street corner where many Cuban writers, musicians and other culture bearers have met and inspired each other over the years - likewise, the band is a meeting point between musicians from different cultures, between Latin and jazz, between tradition and inventivity.
