Carlos Cippelletti: HYBRID/C

HYBRID/C is a musical and cultural fusion project with a common point that is Afro-Cuban music and jazz. Jazz serves as a vehicle on this journey to the roots of Cuban music and Afro-Cuban culture from a modern musical perspective. Born in Spain to a Cuban father and French mother, Carlos Cippelletti’s compositions reflect his various identities. Jazz, Cuban folklore, Neo-Soul and classical music combine to create a sound all its own. This album collects the traditional Afro-Cuban jazz sextet format, (trumpet, tenor sax, piano, double bass, congas / batá drums and drums) including a seventh element that is electronics and synthesizers, creating a point of union between tradition and modernity. HYBRID/C, is a fusion project that shows how, regardless of our roots and ages, beauty always prevails, and unites us through the most universal language we know, music.
– Carlos Cippelletti
