"A new route into Cuban Jazz"

Ramón’s stage presence is commanding, whetever within the ranks of an orchestra or leading a trio. His performances and stage presence are charismatic, his music – intoxicating.
Valle was only seven when he began studying the piano at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in his hometown Holguin, Cuba. He later completed his advanced studies at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana. After establishing himself on the jazz festival scene in Mexico, Bogota and Havana, the great Cuban pianist and founder of Irakere, Chucho Valdes, declared Ramón Valle ‘The greatest talent among our young pianists’, when introducing Ramón on his debut album, Levitando in 1993.

Valle’s original composition, Levitando, has since become a well known Cuban anthem around the world.

Latest Project

For the first time in history, a Cuban-Dutch pianist brings the top of the Dutch music scene in the broadest sense of the word together and starts a movement called Boundless Forces.It is no coincidence that this movement is emerging at a time when we are forced to keep our distance and people are standing up against racism worldwide.
