In the run up to A celebration of Cuban music at The Jazz Cafe ft. Diáspora12-piece + Fiesta Latina on 30th October, we're running an artist focus on the players joining us for the night.
Diáspora's writer, producer and saxophonist Rory Duffy first discovered Latin music and salsa through listening to the records of Paquito D'Riveraand has been composing and arranging Latin music since 2005. Originally from Stroud south west England, Rory studied saxophone at the RNCM - Royal Northern College of Music, before moving to London where he currently sings and plays sax/flute in Rory Jazz and Bossa Nova ensembles and keyboards in Latin party band Fiesta Latina. Diáspora combines Rory's love of fiery Latin rhythms, cool Brazilian harmony and sultry lyricism.
