Delivery, groove and craft. The young Cuban Cimafunk fusing the music of his country with funk and the veteran New York musician Marcus Miller disemboweling the secrets of the most adventurous jazz. By age they could well be son and father, but that age difference will hardly be noticed when they burst onto the stage of Noches del Botánico.
Marcus Miller is a veteran musician from Brooklyn, with more than 30 years of career, fourteen albums to his name and two Grammy Awards, who has put his bass at the service of recordings by Miles Davis, Luther Vandross or David Sanborn, and has collaborated with Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack and Grover Washington Jr. A luxury secondary? No doubt. But also producer and protagonist of a solo career without waste, which at the moment has its last chapter in the very elegant Laid black (2018). A musician with many stripes.
Cimafunk is called the Cuban James Brown for his way of fusing Cuban music with funk, a mixture similar to that proposed by Carlinhos Brown himself when he debuted. Erick Alejandro Rodríguez, also baptized as the ebony god by Fito Páez, is another musician capable on his own of eating the stage in bites. El alimento (2021) was his latest and feverish album, which featured collaborations with Cee Lo Green, Chucho Valdés or Lupe Fiasco, and which made him one of the highlights of the last edition of Noches del Botánico, with a concert that left the audience open-mouthed.
At Noches del Botánico we believe that there is no age to enjoy culture, that is why all minors can access the venue regardless of their age. They must access with their corresponding ticket and accompanied by their father, mother or legal guardian.
If the age of the minor is less than 16 years old, he/she must always be accompanied by his/her father, mother or legal guardian.
