Violin virtuoso Omar Puente returns to his Cuban roots with his Charanga Jazz Sextet.

After a decade of being a leading figure of the UK and international Latin Jazz scene, award winning Cuban jazz violinist Omar Puente returns to his roots with The Omar Puente Charanga Jazz Sextet. The band’s style is a unique fusion of Cuban music, African rhythms and modern Jazz. They will play both original tunes and new arrangements of the best traditional Cuban music.

The virtuosity and charisma typical of Omar’s performances will merge with the flavour of traditional Charanga dance music, a real treat for dancers and audience of all ages. A rare opportunity to see and hear this line – up. One not to be missed!

Internationally renowned for his masterful performances in a variety of musical styles, world class violinist and educator Omar Puente is nothing short of a true virtuoso. After establishing himself as an accomplished musician on his native Cuban soil, Omar moved to England in 1997 and has since captivated audiences in Europe, the Middle and Far East, the USA and Africa.

Having maintained close ties with traditional Cuban music, Omar blends this influence with his extensive training in the classical and jazz idioms, resulting in a musical voice that is rich with energy and colour, matching his charismatic, larger-than-life personality.
His latest project, the Omar Puente Charanga Jazz Sextet, is designed with dance in mind, featuring a blend of original tunes and new arrangements of traditional Cuban favourites.

Throughout his career Omar has performed at many distinguished venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and the Royal Albert Hall, supporting and sharing the stage with a whole host of other esteemed stars including Tito Puente, John Williams, Nigel Kennedy, Courtney Pine and Wynton Marsalis.
His many accolades include The 2018 Lukas Award for Classical, Jazz or Folk Act of the Year, a top 10 placement for Songline Magazine’s Album of the Year and a nomination for Best Jazz Soloist in the 21st International CubaDisco Fair in 2017.
