Nov 17 2022 - Elio Villafranca - Standing by the Crossroads
We are thrilled to announce the next project by two time Grammy® Award Nominated pianist and composer Elio Villafranca. Following the unprecedented success of Cinque', "Standing by the Crossroads" promises to take an even deeper dive into the Cuban culture as experienced by one of the premier musicians to arise from the rich music scene of Cuba.
Growing up in Cuba, I saw how different religions are intertwined with the cultural fabric of the country. In many of these different religions represented in Cuba, people see the crossroads as a place of great significance. It was the spiritual concept of the crossroads that touched me the most and inspired me to create my second record in a musical trilogy that honors my ancestry and my life as a Jazz artist.
