BIOGRAPHY

The wild, multitalented leader of a new generation of
Cuban music brings his musical ‘machine’ to Japan!

Maykel Blanco
y su Salsa Mayor

Maykel Blanco, was born on January 21, 1981 in Havana, in a family that has nothing to do with music. But he liked listening different radio music programs and their parents were very good dancers; he enjoyed listening and humming popular songs. Since he was very little, he used to be involved in school cultural Activities, as well as in his neighbourhood and in different public places, where he sang, danced and imitated artist in fashion, sometimes with saucepans, boxes or anything that might be percussed.

At the age of 12, he began to study percussion at night school “Geraldo Guanche”, later on, at the conservatory “Amadeo Roldan”. When he was just 15 years old, he established his own group, and began to obtain great successes in the movement of amateur artist, receiving multiple awards.
At 18 years old, he formed his first orchestra: “Suprema Ley”, associated to the “Centro Provincial de la Música Rafael Somavilla” in the province of Matanzas. Just 2 years later as the orchestra was created, the record company (label) “Envidia Record” from Spain, included them in their catalog.
The young Maykel working very hard will produce over 10 CDs, and recording as a percussionist in more than 40 CDs and will compose a big part of the songs of the Jazz group “Havana Express”.

In 2005 he assumed the musical direction of “Salsa Mayor”, devoting all his energy, creativity and his musical talent to it, will receive 5 nominations and an award as “The Best Art Direction” .
Within a short we we find him at the head of the musical programs of the country. From 2007 Maykel Blanco as director of his orchestra, becomes one of the main representatives of the Cuban music in various countries of the world, mainly Europe. He realises international tours also in important festivals. In Italy he receives the price of the ” Best Group of Cuban popular music “, in the years years 2006-2007. The same year he receives the price of the best concert live in Paris, in France. This young 32-year-old musician remains faithful to the Cuban popular music, and is called ” musical Machine of Cuba “: "La Maquina de Cuba".

Further to popular songs such as “Recoge y vete”, “Esto está”, “Cimarrón,” “Que tengo”, “Anda y Pégate,” “Si le gusta repite”, “Quitándome lo malo” among others, he becomes member of UNEAC (Nacional Union of Writers and Arts of Cuba).
In 2010 year of big successes, he realises with success a winter tour in Europe to promote his last CD ” ” SOY LO QUE TE HALA ” with Planet Records;
The same year he receives a price and a tribute in Peru as "group revelation of the year".
In 2011 he begins his first tour in LaGn America, in Lima in Peru, with big concerts and a public fan. On returning to Cuba, the label Cuba Bis Music integrates him into its catalog....

History

Each summer since 2002, Latin culture center NPO Tiempo Iberoamericano based in Fukuoka-Japan, has been organizing a Asia-Pacific tour of the world's top-ranking salsa bands. "Enjoy life through music!" is the tour concept we want to shout out, encouraging people to do just that, and creating a space for genuine communication among people. Also embodied in the idea of a "salsa tour" is not just the musical genre "salsa,"but also the original meaning of the word, "sauce," which in this case implies a cultural mix of nationalities, generations and genders that draws beyond cultural divides to create new values in the heart of Asia-Pacific.
