In keeping with its annual tradition, The Music Village is immersing itself in Caribbean colours during the first week of July, with four consecutive evenings of performances by the Cuban singer-songwriter Rey Cabrera.
Rey grew up in Santiago de Cuba with the traditional musica campesina en son, before mastering his art with the greatest Cuban musicians, and especially Eliades Ochoa, the youngest member of Buena Vista Social Club. He became a popular singer, tres player (a small guitar with three double strings), he directed the Trinchera Agraria Orchestra, and he had his own radio show on CMKC and television programme on Telerebelde. He moved to Brussels in 2003, following his beloved. He has already released three albums here and is being accompanied live on the maracas (hand percussion), bass, piano, and percussion.
