    AfroCubism to Tour This Fall Following Album's October Release

    AfroCubism—the great world music album that never was—has finally been realized and is due for release from World Circuit / Nonesuch Records this October. In 1996, a group of acclaimed Malian musicians was due to fly to Havana to collaborate with some of Cuba’s greatest singers and instrumentalists. The Malians never arrived, and a very different album, Buena Vista Social Club, was recorded. To coincide with the release of its forthcoming self-titled album, AfroCubism the band will embark on its first full tour of Europe and North America this fall.

    Following the success of AfroCubism’s premiere shows in Cartagena and Rotterdam in July, the group kicks off its international tour in November with a line-up featuring some of Cuba and Mali's finest musicians: Eliades Ochoa, Bassekou Kouyate, Djelimady Tounkara, Groupo Patria, Toumani Diabaté, Kasse Mady Diabaté, and Lasana Diabaté. In North America, where the album is due for release on Nonesuch on October 19, the group will stop in Montreal, Boston, and New York. For more information on these dates and ticket links, head to nonesuch.com/on-tour. For information on the tour outside of the US, visit worldcircuit.co.uk.

    Jeremy Denk’s Mozart Piano Concertos is now available on Nonesuch Records. Denk is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for two Mozart concertos—No. 25 in C Major, K. 503 and No. 20 in D minor, K. 466—bookending the composer’s solo Rondo in A minor, K. 511. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing. The excellent Saint Paul players match his variety and range of expression. As ever, Denk’s probing liner notes shed light, making an already engrossing album more than worth the purchase.”
