New David Virelles
Pi Recordings and El Tivoli Music are proud to announce the release of Igbo Alakorin (The Singer’s Grove) Vol. I & II. Out October 26th, this new work finds David Virelles traveling home to Santiago to document his research and upbringing with a thoroughly authentic Cuban album.
“What a marvel! Tradition and avant-garde come together in this offering of the highest order. In my opinion, David Virelles is a young virtuoso immersed in research. He knows our African roots with depth. He is an innovator, a perfectionist, and the most creative and advanced of our jazz pianists.
Thank you, David, for making us happy and proud, and for updating our traditions.
Ashé! Never stop!” – Chucho Valdés
