“Benedikt Hesse CubaNola” celebrates 50 years of Miles Davis Bitches Brew. New Orleans Funk Hits Cuban Jazz!

For the anniversary of the legendary album Bitches Brew the band plays excerpts of this unique music. In 1969 Miles Davis merged jazz with funk for the first time and integrated electric musical instruments into the previously mostly acoustic music.

Furthermore, the band presents their current album “Gumbombo´”:

Yes, there are commonalities between Cuba and New Orleans. Both areas are not only connected by the Gulf of Mexico, but also have an intersection in music: danceable grooves, with characteristic rhythmic figures – called claves – and a deep bow to African culture.

Benedikt Hesse CubaNola transcends the boundaries of Latin, Jazz and Funk and musically abolishes 1111 km distance between the two cities.

„They embody the vital pleasure of Cuban music with fiery salsa or rumba sounds.“
