The musicians of the Afro-Cuban group, Tiempo Libre, are masters in mixing the rhythms and sensibilities of their own culture with the music of J.S. Bach. Director/arranger, Jorge Gómez and his fellow band members, grew up studying Bach by day and playing Afro-Cuban music by night.
In this short video, Gómez explains why Bach is the perfect complement to the music of his native Cuba. To me, the mix is magical.
