Amadito Valdès “the timbal magician” was born in Havana, February 14th 1946. He studied at the Havana Conservatoire with maestros Guillermo Barreto and Alfredo de los Reyes. He is the creator of a unique style of improvising on the timbales, which mixes Afro rhythms in 6/8 with the son syncopated rhythms in 2/4. Valdès has worked with all the most important Cuban big bands since the ‘70s and recorded countless albums with artists of the stature of Las D’Aide, Paquito Revera, Emiliane Salvador, Bebo Valdès, Las Estrellas de Areito and Peruchin. Since 1997, he has recorded and toured the globe with artists such as Juan do Marco and the Afro-Cuban-Allstars, Rubèn Gonzàlez, Felix Baloy. He is featured in Wim Wender’s famous movie Buena Vista Social Club and has also performed at the 42nd annual Grammy Awards 2000 in Los Angeles featuring Grammy Winner Ibrahim Ferrer.
