Copenhagen Blues

On October 18th I had the opportunity to perform at Copenahgen’s Great Synagogue with Roberto Rodriguez and the Cuban Jewish All Stars. It’s a unique band fusing Klezmer melodies with Cuban rhythms and a lot of improvisation. Check out some videos here.

Off to Copenhagen, Denmark!

On my way to Copenhagen to play with Roberto Juan Rodriguez and the Cuban Jewish All Stars!
