Good day dear blog followers, readers ¡y todos los amantes de la musica Cubana!
Today I present you a fine composition by talented Cuban bassist, pianist, singer and arranger Yorgis Goiricelaya…
Yorgis Goiricelaya comes from Matanzas, Cuba, where he started studying piano at the age of 8, joining a musical group only 2 year later, at 10 years of age.
Yorgis moved to Costa Rica in 1997, and soon started performing professionally as a pianist and bassist.
A bit later, in 1999, Yorgis started writing and arranging music as a musician and manager of the country’s most well know Timba band, Conjunto Chocolate, with whom he received several national level awards for 2 successful album released by that band.
Yorgis released his first independent album, Abriendo Caminos, in 2005, exceeding the expectations of critics, bringing about a series of concerts noted as the best Cuban music concerts in Costa Rica by the country’s leading newspaper, La Nacion.
In late 2005 Yorgis moved to Miami, and since then have been performing around the world with such artists as Issac Delgado, Oscar De Leon, Irakere, Celia Cruz, Xiomara Laugart, Malena Burke and many more.
In 2010 Yorgis released his second Album, Elegance, containing mostly Latin Jazz, together with such special guests as Paquito De Rivera, Isaac Delgado, and Tony Perez among others.
In 2013 he was nominated for the Latin Grammy awards.
Today’s composition comes from Yorgis’s first album, Abriendo Caminos, and is called Otro Loco Que Se Enamoro.
