Performing Artists

London-based Cuban trumpet player Yelfris Valdes has redefined the role of Latin brass in the capital since he arrived in 2014. A member of the acclaimed Cuban band Sierra Maestra for ten years, Yelfris debuts his new project For the Ones.. which marks an adventurous and experimental shift in his composition. In his new work, Yelfris connects his Yoruba religion and its shamanic chants with electronics to create a layered and hypnotic effect, transforming the acoustic sound of his trumpet without losing its power and tenderness.The rhythm section retains all the Latin and African influences of traditional Cuban music, but fused with complex harmonies and electronics.
Yelfris's versatility and improvisational abilities have led him to play with Yussef Kamal, Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, grime legend Kano MC, as well as Chucho Valdés, Billy Harper, Charlie Hunter, Sugaray, and Quantic.
Yelfris previously released his solo album The World of Eshu Dina in 2018.
'When it comes to Yelfris Valdés and his countless music projects, you can be sure of two things: their quality and ability to surprise you' Rhythm Passport
