MAYKEL BLANCO Y SU SALSA MAYOR LIVE @ BROOKLYN BOWL IN THE O2 ARENA

 

MAYKEL BLANCO Y SU SALSA MAYOR LIVE AT THE BROOKLYN BOWL IN THE 02 ARENA WITH DJS RICH, JIM & JAVIER SATURDAY 11th JUNE 2016

CONFIRMED! The highly anticipated return to London of one of Cuba’s very best bands Maykel Blanco Y Su Salsa Mayor is a huge event on the Cuban calendar in the UK.

Loved around the world for their exciting brand of Cuban Timba, this outstanding group are at the top of their musical game. Since the release of their first album, Recoge Y Vete, in 2006, they have consistently produced hit after hit of hugely popular, highly danceable & sweetly melodic Cuban dance music. They are every Cuban DJ’s secret super weapon that never fails to ignite the dance floor.

One of the most talented musicians in Cuba today, when you listen to his distinctive piano styling, you’ll be amazed to know that were not Maykel’s first instrument. He initially studied percussion, but taught himself to play piano because he was dissatisfied with the arrangements other people were doing. After playing in various bands, and releasing one very distinctive and interesting album, Ya Llegaron Los Cubanos, with his own group, La Suprema Ley, Maykel took over an existing band, Salsa Mayor, in 2004, renaming it Maykel Blanco Y Su Salsa Mayor.

Six thrilling albums later, Maykel and the band consistently tour Europe and South America to huge acclaim while continuing to develop their deliriously infectious dance music. Their London date comes on the back of their latest album release earlier this year, the excellent Cd ‘Que No Me Quiten La Fe’. The venue is the fabulous, funky, plush and polished Brooklyn Bowl at the O2 Arena, where at the concert you can expect to hear a delicious selection of the band’s big hits from the last 10 years, along with some of the current floor slammers from this their outstanding 6th album. You will be in heaven!

Biography

Maykel Blanco y su Salsa Mayor

MAYKEL BLANCO Y SU SALSA MAYOR

 

Maykel Blanco was born on January 21, 1981 in Havana, in a family that has nothing to do with music. But he liked listening different radio music programs and their parents were very good dancers; he enjoyed listening and humming popular songs. Since he was very little, he used to be involved in school cultural activities, as well as in his neighborhood and in different public places, where he sang, danced and imitated artists in fashion, sometimes with saucepans, boxes or anything that might be percussed.

At the age of 12, he began to study percussion at night school “Geraldo Guanche”, later on, at the conservatory “Amadeo Roldan”. When he was just 15 years old, he established his own group, and began to obtain great successes in the movement of amateur artists, receiving multiple awards.

At 18 years old, he formed his first orchestra: “Suprema Lay”, associated to the “Centro Provincial de la Música Rafael Somavilla” in the province of Matanzas. Just 2 years later as the orchestra was created, the record company (label) “Envidia Record” from Spain, included them in their catalog.

The young Maykel working very hard will produce over 10 CDs, and recording as a percussionist in more than 40 CDs and will compose a big part of the songs of the Jazz group « Habana Express ».

In 2005 he assumed the musical direction of “Salsa Mayor”, devoting all his energy, creativity and his musical talent to it, will receiv 5 nominations and an award as “The Best Art Direction” .

Within a short time we find him at the head of the musical programs of the country. From 2007 Maykel Blanco as director of his orchestra, becomes one of the main representatives of the Cuban music in various countries of the world, mainly Europe. He realizes international tours also in important festivals. In Italy he receives the price of the ” Better Group of Cuban popular music “, in the years years 2006-2007.
