David Buchbinder’s Odessa/Havana

David Buchbinder’s Odessa/Havana

Toronto, Ontario

David Buchbinder teams up with a crew of top Jazz and World musicians to present this exhilarating project of musical discovery: the Jewish-Cuban connection. Arising out of the musical ferment of Toronto, one of the most diverse cities on the planet, this truly original sound is created through the creative exchange between Buchbinder and Grammy-nominated Cuban piano master Hilario Durán, and a band featuring some of the best musicians out there. Together, these forces take audiences on a journey of cross-cultural discovery that consistently engages, challenges and delights. Odessa/Havana’s two albums have been beautifully received, honoured with a 2014 JUNO Award and a Canadian Folk Music Award, numerous nominations, and well as over 100 rave reviews. When this band hits the stage, you know there will be “…terrifically exciting, hardswinging fireworks!”
