Event Details

Latin Grammy-nominee Renesito Avich (Best Traditional Tropical Album) returns to the Fogartyville stage for another can’t-miss performance!

Renesito Avich is a virtuoso tres guitar player and one-man Cuban band. He was born in Santiago de Cuba and pursued his musical education at the University of the Arts in Havana. At the age of 15, while still living in Cuba, Avich began performing with the 17-member salsa big band Elito Revé y su Charangón. This group toured across South America and Europe. He moved to Sarasota, Florida, in 2014. His primary instrument remains the tres guitar, which is the national instrument of Cuba. It is named “tres” (three) because it contains three pairs of strings, for a total of six strings.

“The creative work of Renesito, who was born in Santiago de Cuba, fully exploits the physiognomic possibilities and techniques of the instrument with a brilliant concept of interpretative excellence. His compositions denote a broad conception of the sound of the Cuban Tres, in which he uses expressive resources of Classical music, Jazz and World Music. Its roots lead him to recreate and develop melodies, rhythms, styles and rhythms of the Trova, the Changüí Nengón, the Conga, Rumba and Son Santiago, making a kind of journey through the different playing styles of the eastern country, mixed with the urban concept of Arsenio Rodríguez and Child Rivera.” — Latin Jazz Network
