University of Cambridge members and musicians enjoy access to Medici.tv, subscribed by Cambridge University Libraries for the Music Faculty.
We’re thrilled to hear that medici.tv, a few days ago, live from the Philharmonie de Paris, spent a jazzy moment in the company of the extraordinary Chucho Valdés—renowned composer, dynamite pianist, expert arranger, and legendary pioneer of Afro-Cuban jazz.
Valdés opened the festivities with an incredible solo recital, before moving on to one of his own compositions, La Creación, through which he recounts the emergence of Yoruba culture, of West African origin, in the Caribbean.
Medici.tv has added this to Cambridge’s subscription, though it is normally only available as part of the jazz collection (which is an as-yet unsubscribed part of medici.tv).
To access the Val recording scroll down on the medici.tv home page to “must see replays” or go directly to https://ezp.lib.cam.ac.uk/login?url=https://edu.medici.tv/en/jazz/chucho-valdes-plays-la-creacion/
