Chucho Valdes was born to a father who also was an influential figure in the Cuban jazz music as a bandleader at that time. Hence Valdes took his very first piano lessons from his father, Bebo Valdes. Since Valdes had a flair for music at a very early age, eventually he got into Municipal Music Conservatory of Havana from where he graduated by the time he was just fourteen years of age. Taking inspiration for the jazz acts like Thelonious Monk and Art Tatum, sooner than later Valdes formed a jazz trio and with that he was able to get top notch performances at various hotels in Havana. Apart from his trio, Valdes also performed alongside his father’s Sabor De Cuba Orchestra from time to time.
Valdes kept on performing and evolving as a jazz musician throughout 1960s with performances as such alongside some of the best musicians from Cuba. Around that time, Valdes also started to experiment with his sound by mixing Cuban styles of music with classical and jazz music. In 1970, Valdes and his group made history by becoming the first Cuban group ever to perform abroad, when they performed in Poland at the Jazz Jamboree International Jazz Festival.
In 1973, Chucho Valdes laid foundation to a Latin Jazz Ensemble called Irakere, which went on to become one of the most influential and innovative jazz groups in Cuba. The lineup of the group comprised of numerous former members of Orquesta Nacional de Musica Moderna. Soon after its formation, Irakere caught the attention of the international listeners thanks to innovative mix of Cuban music with the elements of classical, funk, rock and jazz music. In 1978, the group started recording its debut album which was later released in 1979. The group’s debut album turned out to be a huge international success and also earned Irakere its very first Grammy Award as well as international exposure. Over the years, the lineup of the group has changed on numerous occasions, but still Chucho Valdes keeps on performing with the new lineup. Irakere’s performances are highly awaited by the patrons of Cuban jazz music, and since the group rarely comes out to perform internationally, it’s probably a good idea to get your Chucho Valdes tickets before the event is sold out.
Even though Valdes keeps on performing internationally from time to time, still he has always lived in Cuba. Valdes has always kept a top notch international touring schedule all through his career; and for that he was also titled the Goodwill Ambassador of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2006. As a recording artist, Valdes has also always kept a steady flow of his studio albums coming out for the fans of his music.
