Pianist and composer Pepe Rivero is part of a "New Generation" of Cuban musicians who have broken into the international jazz scene. After finishing his piano studies at the Higher Institute of Art in Havana where he received a classical training, his vocation led him to jazz.
The music that Pepe Rivero composes, which also integrates other genres within Latin jazz, such as flamenco, bossa-nova and classical jazz itself, is capable of creating different atmospheres in the same composition, moving with such skill from one to the other, which gives the impression that music is only one: indivisible and universal.
