The second edition of the festival will take place from the 5th to the 15th of June and will include exclusive performances by Moncho, Juana Bacallao and Changuito
The Jamboree Jazz Club will once again be the epicentre for the Festival Ron Varadero del Bolero, which celebrates its second edition this year between the 5th and 15th of June. One of the stars of the festival will be Barcelona-born Moncho, considered by many the king of the bolero and one of the most respected artists of the genre on both sides of the Atlantic. For the singer, the concerts in the Jamboree will have special significance as they suppose a return to the stage where his career began.
On a historical note, this second edition will also signify the first appearance in the country of Cuban cabaret legend, Juana Bacallao, the very essence of Cuban popular music at almost 90 years of age. Her performances here will serve as a reminder that she has been performing in the emblematic club El Gato Tuerto, in Havana, for more than twenty years and that she is the only artist in the world who continues to perform daily at her age.
The festival will also include performances by José Luis Quintana, Changuito, another international Cuban artist and legendary member of the Los Van Van Orchestra. There will also be a space given over to new generations of bolero artists. Cádiz-born jazz pianist Javier Galiana will perform a tribute to Cuban giant, Bola de Nieve, and, in addition, will make his singing debut with Tomate, Trío y Cebolla. Singer Luzmilla Mercerón, for her part, will offer a repertoire based on the songs of Edye Gormé, Esther Borja and Cheo Feliciano in an evening dedicated to the author Gabriel García Márquez, a confessed lover of the bolero.
