Born in the province of Havana, October 6, 1918, Dionisio Ramon Emilio Vald??s says “Bebo”, pianist, arranger and composer, died in Sweden on March 23. It is said that he suffered from Alzheimer’s wrong. His latest album, great meeting, is a disc with four hands with his son “Chucho” Cuban legend also Quivacan born in 1941, but remained in Cuba him.
Thus we learn, through the voice of Cristina Huerte the disappearance of Bebo Vald??s, the legend of Cuban music. The filmmaker Fernando Trueba, companion Cristina Huerte had in 2004 exhumed Bebo Vald??s thanks to his film Calle 54. Bebo Vald??s living happily with his Swedish family. Calle 54 is the street of Miami, where the large community of Cuban exiles live.
Calle 54, the film is for the Buenavista Social Club without the presence at every turn Ry Cooder who obviously thinks he’s the hero of the Social Club. Thanks to the film by Fernando Trueba, the great Bebo, that nobody knew, took over the hair of the keyboard, recording alternately hands, with the most valuable partners. As the hero of the Buenavista Social Club, Compay Segundo, Bebo Vald??s saw a renaissance made tours and public success. Fernando Trueba made him burn large Cuban songs with Dieguito El Cigala: album, L??grimas Negras, toured the world. I must say that for him from oblivion, we did not go into detail. It is associated Caetano Veloso, Paquito D’Rivera, and Puntilla few extra sizes, as this wonder of violin, Federico Britos, which we recognize? Line unerringly stamp on Mars.
The big Castro’s revolution was not his taste, Bebo had broken quickly, leaving behind a family whose flagship become Chucho giant debonair with silver fingers. Chucho, as the Conservatory of Havana, gave his first recital in 1950, he was 9 years (Mozart, Beethoven Sonatina one and two pieces of his teachers). But teenager during the Great Castro revolution, he is careful to dive into the canons approved by the white oligarchy Fidel (priority to European music, folklorism idiot, hate jazz “Yankee”). Clean slate on the flavor of Afro-Cuban music. Black music.
As it would be in a hurry to see the father in exile (1960) a comfortable choice. Bebo is little-known slave son, origin – having slender stature – Yoruba, and riveted to the color of his skin that we never talk about when we talk about the Castro revolution. The Black Tears can not be reduced to a bolero for sunset over the sea Cara? Be.
Chucho (1941) still lives in Cuba, his mother was 90 years old. The grandmother called Chucho Caridad. Human wonder, woman of women, Catholic version of Yoruba. By dint of seeing his son Bebo draw airplanes, Caridad had ended up winning the lottery. To pay anything with the money? A piano. And that’s how his daughter is dumb, and his son Bebo Bebo becomes the musical director Julio Cueva, then the idol of Tropicana before Fidel overturns idols and sad tropics. However, Caridad, who has principles, it was understood that refuses Chucho makes the clown at the Tropicana, I must say he was 11. The padre moved on to other places, it will draw its incredible road, but do not believe that things are easy on the earth.
Cuban music had its Golden Age from 1940 to 1960, as saying in a pretty link on virtue. This will make it ha? Ssable the Revolution. Composer and conductor recognized, Bebo is one of my? Very. It burns the first Cuban jazz album in 1952 (Con Poco Coco). The famous meetings were held in Nueva York, between Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker and percussionist Chano Pozo. Others will follow, but the “Sabor de Cuba”, which Bebo Vald??s made an album title, is in the eye on a special flavor made dance and expressive joy.
The Golden Afro-Cuban music sees Age reign mambo and cha cha cha. Charangas who play fade in popular favor the reign of the great orchestras. But they continue to be the great reference. On the sleeves, beautiful girls in bikini lie on a piano (grand) with a dr? The look (Peruchin y su grupo), or drink a da? QUIRI (Da? QUIRI musical, Orquesta Riverside) with a eye corner.
It is at the Tropicana that Hemingway took his da? QUIRI. When he took one, he did follow all the glasses that the orchestra of Armando Romeu had desks. Luis Escalante and Alejandro “El Negro” Vivar are the trumpets can be heard up to Stockholm. Leopoldo “Pucho” Escalante, trombone; Gustavo Mas, Rafael “Tata” Palau and Pedro Chao, sax section, Fernando Vivar and Kiki Hernandez, bass, no need for these amps wimps that make you a big sound drone. Guillermo Barreto keeps sticks and Bebo Vald??s has no difficulty to believe that the keyboard has 176 keys. So, Hemingway decided to switch to 176 da? Quiris. The liturgy was stricter than the Palm Sunday Mass: three American standards, twenty-four success of Cuban music, a paso doble to the road. Armando Romeu is twenty-five years at the Tropicana.
Bebo, his pianist and arranger, leaving to play with the great voice of Cuba, Beny Mor??, and launch a new rhythm, Batanga. Increased congas, tumbaodoras and a bata drum, a fabulous big band never recorded. First Cuban orchestra include – twenty-one years before the Chucho Vald??s reintroduce his group Irakere – bata from the Santeria of Yoruba origin. There are no traces discography is a blessing that will prevent radio knuckleheads “young” to simper by announcing ant “a little Latin flavor retro” and perpetrators of the remix with a rhythmic enclumeur lobotomized?.
Sabor de Cuba, the last group of Service in Havana, had four immensely popular singers Laserie Rolando, Fernando Alvarez, Pio Leyva and Orlando Guerra. Number of American musicians, the most prestigious, were crossing the copper with the Cubans. After a long stay in Stockholm (he got married in the early 1970s), Bebo Vald??s lived in Andalusia with Flamenco. He did not want to be buried in Cuba. In February 2013, before accelerating its evil, his children repatriated to Sweden, where he died a few months after Rose-Marie, his wife.
