On Friday, February 8th, Vedado Social Club, along with JJ Productions, is bringing one of the most talented Cuban musicians of his generation, David Torrens, to present his last CD "Razones" in an intimate concert at The News Lounge (5580 NE 4th Ct. Miami Upper East Side, FL 33137). Besides, renowned Cuban artists such as Reynier Ferrer, Javier Guerra, and Ismael Gomez Peralta, who have been featured in Cuban Collectors events, will make a live performance of drip painting on canvas.
David Torrens is a singer-songwriter whose songs are the result of several sources: the Brazilian music, the rock, the Cuban trova, the boleros and also, all the Cuban sound richness. As a result of the fusion of all those rhythms, his style cannot be classified into a single genre, though it is one of the most interesting proposals of the new generation of Cuban singers. In 1995, he signed a contract with the Mexican Record Company EMI Music and he then moved in to the capital of that country, where his first disc “Mi poquita fe” was edited in 1998. From then on, David Torrens became popular in Cuba thanks to the video-clip of “Sentimientos ajenos”, granted the ERES Award to the most popular song of the year. His second album, “Ni de aquí, ni de allá”, where he once again used a sound fusion with a pop-rock soundtrack, was presented in 2001.
David Torrens spent the last years between Mexico and Havana, till in 2010 he presented “Razones”, this time with the Cuban Record Company Bis Music. The expectations his audience had for new songs was rewarded with a mature, powerful and hypnotic sound, plus the luxury collaborations of Pablo Milanés and Kelvis Ochoa. That disc received a Cubadisco Award in the fusion category. After more than two decades of entertaining the audience with his music and talent, David Torrens has joined the best Cuban voices. With lyrics about love, sex, disappointment, remoteness and daily life, in addition to a combination of rhythms and styles, Torrens shows in his work the musical tradition of the country, now resized to new horizons.
