„cuarteao“: Spanish for broken and cracked. This is how the Cuban Yosvany Quintero and his fellow musicians refer to their project, which is a dense, jostling, pulsating mix of jazz, funk, drum’n’ bass, Cuban music and classical avant-garde, in which the harmonies, rhythms and formal structures are frequently broken. Their sounds are like the cracks in sun-baked soil, taking individual and unpredictable directions.
„cuarteao“: Spanish for quartered. Four young musicians, all with classical training and at home in the most varied musical areas, have gathered to present the unusual melodic and rhythmic compositional ideas of Yosvany Quintero. Collectively, they develop these ideas in the process of improvisational interplay, the result of which is music characterised by experiment and joy of playing.
