"Roberto Juan Rodriguez is a bona fide innovator, that rare musician whose creative vision… breathes joy and melancholy with tremendous emotional clarity."—Tom Jurek, All Music Guide
The Sexteto Rodriguez Cuban-Jewish All Stars bring two sets of Havana-inspired, contagious Latin Klezmer—think Catskills-Havana circa 40's and 50's—complete with Jewhito drink specials, lots of salsa and more groovin' latin dance music than your hips can handle. Come prepared to have a great time. Descarga.com says of their latest CD Timba Talmud: "This absolute gem of a release bears the sweet fruit of the unlikely marriage of Cuban roots dance music, i.e. danzón, cha-cha-chá, with Jewish klezmer traditions. Mix in a heaping spoonful of experimentalism and the result is astonishingly beautiful, filled to the brim with flavor, soul and fiery Cuban grooves. Recorded for John Zorn's far-thinking Tzadik label. Not to be missed. Very Highly Recommended."
Born in East Havana Cuba and raised in Miami, percussionist and composer Roberto Rodriguez brings groundbreaking new music through his cross-cultural roots. Drawing upon his influences across the board of traditional Cuban music roots to contemporary genres of world music and Sephardic music, pop, jazz and improvisation, electronic, classical, he is one of the most versed performers and intriguing composers today.
