Drummer, bandleader, and composer Dafnis Prieto has embarked on a new project, and he’s looking for your support to make it a reality. Prieto is currently running a fund raising campaign to pay for the recording of his first big band album, Tribute. Well respected as both a drummer and composer, Prieto has spent years developing his voice as a composer, and this should be a good expansion of his artistic vision. You can provide your financial support to the project HERE.

Speaking about the project, Prieto said:
“I’m immensely grateful for your consideration to help support this very special recording,” writes Prieto. “This album includes all new arrangements from a selected list of my compositions. It comprises a personal approach to music, which includes where I come from and where I’m going. As an artist I can’t help but bring my own view of sounds, textures, melodies, harmonies, and rhythms. I share who I am, what I think, and what I feel in my music, with joy. This Big Band will be an exhilarating experience that invites the listener to a profound mix of cultures. The project will burst with imagination, will be fashionable but rhythmically intense — emotionally and spiritually — and will have roots in both my native Cuban culture and my second home for the last 17 years, the United States.”

You can get even more information about the project in this video overview:

Tribute is an exciting project that holds a lot of potential to be a major artistic statement in the Latin Jazz world. With the combined artistic integrity of Prieto and the production excellence of Eric Oberstein, this looks to be an impressive collection of music. This is a project worth supporting – I encourage you to provide your financial support to help make Tribute a reality – you can make your contribution HERE.
