A ‘music archeologist’ at heart, Barry Cuda presents his first concert of classical Afro-Cubano piano music. Driven by a mission to perform music that celebrates an integral part of Key West’s heritage, he’s curated a beautiful and haunting collection. Barry Cuda has been entertaining Key West for 30 years. This is the concert he’s been waiting to give.

Following the release of his newest album, No Llores Mas (Weep No More), Barry Cuda presents his first full concert of Afro-Cubano piano music from 1860-1930. Driven by a mission to present music that in his words, “deserves to be heard by ears other than the ears of ghost cigar rollers that used to labor here over 100 years ago”, Barry Cuda has curated a pitch-perfect event.

 

This beautiful, haunting music is a natural fit in Key West, representing an integral part of the island’s heritage and serving as a primer to contemporary Western jazz and pop music. Did you know that Elvis’ You Ain’t Nothing But a Hound Dog is a habanera? And that Louie Louie is a cha cha cha lifted from the 1930’s Cuban 78 rpm record El Loco Cha Cha?

 

A self-proclaimed “music archeologist and torch bearer”, Barry Cuda has been entertaining Key West for 30 years. This is the concert he’s been waiting to perform.
