When I entered in the hall, there were no familiar faces. Half of them were officials and they were just doing their job by attending the concert. The sound quality wasn’t that great. I had high expectations in this regard.
The band consists of Alberto Batista Hernandez (drums), Ana Maria caluff Oropesa (piano) and Ariel Jorge Pérez Caballero (trombone).
The Cuban Band performed several compositions. Spanish and Punjabi are the two names I remember. Music was great and three of them were synched together and were into it. All of them were very different and interesting characters. Alberto was quite and calm. Ana was a guitarist on the piano. No doubt she was the cute one too but she also got liveliness and cheer in her actions while playing piano. Mr. Ariel was the stage prince. He showed very good dancing moves and he was enjoying the music which they were playing there.
During the concert the information minister came and didn’t stay long. There was a private channel’s TV anchor whom I only know by face. He wasn’t happy with one of the camera-man because camera-man was standing right in front of him. Poor anchor. He did get angry and kind a loose temper while camera-man was adjusting the view. Well it wasn’t a drama but a noticeable activity.
The music was great and the night was cold as it should be. Because I think Jazz music heats up the soul in dark cold nights of winter.
Thank you Radio Pakistan, Islamabad and Cuban Band for providing lovely entertainment.
