Harold López-Nussa

Te Lo Dije

Imagine yourself walking down the streets of Havana hearing music from people’s homes, parties being thrown and paladares or night clubs filled with patrons dancing: this is the soul of Cuba. Havana-based pianist and composer Harold López-Nussa’s vibrant and spirited third recording for Mack Avenue Records captures those moments with a marriage of jazz and Cuban pop music, joyfully standing up for that ambitious vision. Featuring drummer Ruy Adrián López-Nussa, bassist Julio César González and trumpeter Mayquel González, “Te Lo Dije” boasts a number of special guests, including Afro-Cuban funk superstar Cimafunk, French accordionist Vincent Peirani, famed Cuban reggaeton vocalist Randy Malcom, and vocalist Kelvis Ochoa, to realize its picturesque look at Cuban culture.

López-Nussa was born into a musical family in Havana on July 13, 1983. Not only are his father and uncle—Ernán, a pianist—working musicians, but also his late mother, Mayra Torres, was a highly regarded piano teacher. At the age of eight, López-Nussa began studying at the Manuel Saumell Elementary School of Music, then the Amadeo Roldán Conservatory and finally graduating with a degree in classical piano from the Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA). “I studied classical music and that’s all I did until I was 18,” he says. Then came jazz.
