In his thriving 38-year career, Calixto Oviedo, a Latin Grammy nominee for La Rumba del Siglo (2000), has collaborated with renowned global artists such as Paquito D’Rivera, Arturo Sandoval, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Chucho Valdés. He has also shared the stage with celebrated Cuban percussionists like Tata Güines, José Luis “Changuito” Quintana and Miguel “Angá” Diaz. He has participated in prestigious festivals around the world, including La Feria de Cali (Colombia), Montreaux Jazz Festival (Canada), Paleo Rock Festival (Switzerland), Carnaval in Panamá (Panama), Nice Jazz Festival (France), A Sulle Festival (Italy) and the Festival de Salsa de Madrid (Spain).
With Calixto Oviedo and the Cuban Jazz Train, he aims to reshape the connection between Afro-Cuban music and jazz. Originating from a common African polyrhythmic foundation, the group playfully combines traditional Spanish elements and distinct blues inflections for a sound that is truly their own.
