Juno-nominated pianist and composer Rafael Zaldivar has announced a new studio album called RUMBA that features guest performances by Terri Lyne Carrington, Ingrid Jensen, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Miguel Zenón.

The Cuban-born, Montreal-based artist looks to combine the “holistic vibe and rhythmic circularity of Afro-Cuban music” with a contemporary jazz sound on the 12-track album, according to a media release.

RUMBA’s title refers to the social gatherings of the Black community in Havana, which celebrate the deceased in ceremonial song and dance; it’s a cultural practice Zaldivar has been involved with since childhood. Zaldivar explains that RUMBA aims to promote social interaction, cultural exchange, and the transmission of Africanism.
