Fuego cubano at Studio 1: Recording with Rubalcaba Quartet

This week, we recorded the Cuban Rubalcaba Quartet for our long-term partner Termidor.

The band around Luis Frank Arias, one of the major singers in Son Cubano, and Cuban doyen pianist Guillermo "Rubalcaba" Gonzáles, recorded a versatile album which ranges from traditional cuban inspired songs to rather modern Cuban tunes to Flamenco. For this, the Flamenco singer Carmen Fernandez participated as a Special Guest. The Tonmeister was Johannes Wohlleben who himself was in Cuba several times and therefore could provide not only with fluent Spanish but also with great experience in this field.

The other muscians of the band currently live in Germany, but Rubalcaba came direktly from Cuba. Arriving at the Stuttgart Airport, he asked to be driven directly to the studio to test our Grand Piano. That he was happy with it will obviously be heard on the CD.
