Fusion Batá is a music project that reflects and unites the merging of different cultures. Jazzy elements in connection with traditional Cuban percussion of the batá show that jazz does not give up borders and playfully brings together all musical styles. The listener is carried away by the lightness of the groove between bass, percussion and drums. Improvisations in connection with rap parts round off the composition to a crossover of cultures.

A batá drum is a two-headed hourglass drum in Yoruba cult music in Nigeria and Benin, which is also used in the African-American Santeria religion in the Caribbean. The experimental fusion of jazz and afro cuban religious music is a new marriage that has never been performed before and deserves to be heard.

Alfredo Hechavarria a cuban composer/ arranger/ bassplayer recorded in the Art Studios in Frankfurt a. Main his new multiculture CD Fusion Batá with musicians from all over the world.
