Raquel Bitton - Rhythm of the Heart

Rhythm of the Heart

Havana meets Paris - imagine the sensuality and passion of this melding of two romantic worlds!

Knowing well that Cuban music traces it roots equally from Europe and Africa and born in Marrakech, immersed in French culture all my life – Havana felt like home.

Realities begin as silent dreams that completely consume your soul. The dream becomes a heartbeat, the tempo of the songs picks up, and the rhythm builds inexorably. The Bandoneon, strings and horns blend with my voice and that Rhythm, that pulsating rhythm! and we’re off! I dance, I cry, I hope, I touch, I love. I feel the lovers’ joys and sorrows, their longing.
