Real Project is an avant-garde Cuban jazz band founded in 2013 by drummer Ruly Herrera and pianist Jorge Luis Lagarza. Together, they make experimentation their spearhead, which translates into an adventurous musical proposition that pushes back the boundaries between musical genres. Real Project’s jazz is instilled with the different rhythms of Cuban music, with touches of pop, R&B, funk, country, and even jazz rock. Their first eponymous record won them the most important prize awarded by the Cuban music industry at the XIX International Fair of Cubadisco, in 2017 in the category Jazz Ensemble. Programmed several times at the Jazz Plaza festival in Havana, the group is now recording its 3rd album with the collaboration of Theo Croker, a young American trumpet player nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award.
The PAPJAZZ looks forward to welcoming Real Project, a dynamic and experimental fusion quartet.
