The Godfather of the Cuban Nueva Trova movement performs with his band for the first time in London in twenty years. Known for their eloquent symbolism and questioning lyrics, his songs are anthems across Latin America. Nueva Trova are songs of protest incorporating Cuban traditional and popular music with jazz, rock and classical music. From the late 60s Silvio led the way, and continues to produce the ‘soundtrack of revolution’.
