Pavel Urkiza is a composer, guitarist and singer of Cuban origin who is considered a maestro of Afro-Cuban music. His respect and understanding of Cuba’s rich musicological ancestry, in combination with 22 years of musical experience in the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Island have resulted in his truly unique style that offers a vast spectrum of rhythms, harmonies, melodies and lyrics. A mix of Afro, Cuban, and Ibero-American flavors are evident in his guitar playing and vocals. The result is a Caribbean-Mediterranean way of playing with a singular Cuban swing. With his latest project, “La Ruta de las Almas”, his sensibility for fusing world music styles reaches new heights. Mixing Sephardic, Spanish and Latin American sounds, the effect is lyrical and transports us on a voyage of sensations.
