Alfredo Rodriguez

The Invasion Parade

On The Invasion Parade, the follow-up to his stunning debut on Mack Avenue, Sounds of Space, Rodríguez explores his memories of Cuba, the people and the culture he left behind—and finds his new place.

For those who know how to listen, time and distance offer a wealth of perspective. “When you live in your own country, you are immersed in that reality and you’re not necessarily conscious of all the different elements that make it what it is,” says Cuban pianist Alfredo Rodriguez, who moved to the United States in January 2009. "I breathed Cuban music. Being outside that reality gives me a different perspective. Creating and playing this music has been like finding out who I am, all over again."
