Chucho Valdés presents “Border Free”, a tribute to his father Bebo Valdés

They cooked white rice, black beans and mince, they prepared drinks with Cuban rum and they listened to music as they did during their youth in La Habana. They shared a friend relationship, “not only a father and child, but also from a student to a professor”

The pianist Chucho Valdés remembers in that way the last days he shared with his father, Bebo, in Spain. They made up a “large part of loss time” with that “beautiful family life”.

He decide to move to Benalmádena, in Malaga (Spain), three years ago when he knew about his father disease, “alzheimer. Chucho was working on his last record, “Border Free”, while his father taught his grandson Julian in order to continue with the family tradition.
He presents this Friday in New York that CD in honour of his father, which was composed months before his father death. Also, he wants to pay tribute to his mother with an instrumental version of his famous “Pilar” and to his grandmother with the renowned “Caridad Amaro”.
It is a tribute to the “four biggest prizes” that “God have given” to him: his grandmother, his mother, his father and the music, says Chucho to EFE.
Bebo left Cuba in 1960 when he refused to denounce his friend Humberto Suárez, as it was required by the new authorities appeared after the revolution. From that moment, his music was banned in the Island.
