Cuban Singer to Tour Asia

Cuban Singer to Tour AsiaHavana, Oct 13. -Cuban singer and composer Raul Paz will travel to Asia late this month to promote his latest CD Havanization, as part of an international tour extended to Europe and Latin America until mid-2011.

The singer told Prensa Latina he would perform in Japan and Indonesia first, and then in Paris, where he will close the first part of his tour with a concert on December 7, together with Spanish singer Rosario Flores as guest.

The Spanish singer accompanies him on a version of the song for which the CD is named, and which the musician describes as a cocktail of nueva trova, son, and rhythm and blues.

Havanization will be launched in Cuba in January, and later promoted in Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia, among other countries.

Paz is one of the most outstanding figures of technopop, rock, trova, pop, and Cuban fusion, and has eight discs, including "Mulata," "Cuba libre," and "Revolucion."  (Prensa Latina)
