His Afro Cuban Salsa Group TIERRA CALIENTE delivers a high energy show full of versatile arrangements, with a touch of Funk and Jazz and including some of the best Cuban musicians living in Europe. They have just been recording at the Danish Radio House in Copenhagen, and producer Nils Ekner called it their “Best Latin project ever!”

The young trumpet player has performed with big names like Omara Portuondo and Felix Valoy, from Buena Vista Social Club, Rolo Martinez from Cubanismo, Grammy winner Rene Luis Toledo, Eddie Palmieri, Alexander Abreu & Habana de Primera and Berlin Big Band. His salsa band “Tierra Caliente” was re-established in 2010, and “Kind of Cuban” in 2011.

A tropical night of high standards!

"I heard Yuliesky Gonzalez play two years ago in Berlin. I was amazed by his facility on the trumpet. His range is exceptional as is his projection, particularly in the higher register"
Gerard Presencer

"I am sure Yulio will continue to take by storm any audience for whom he performs. Gonzalez trumpet playing is really amazing -- truly world class with all the qualities of imagination, power, range, sustained improvisations and group synchrony that are really the skills of a great horn player, and with a modesty that made it all the better. What it said on WOMEX is true; "Yuliesky Gonzalez has a fluent ability to write new Cuban Jazz, with an elegance and variation that makes the listener hold the breath in enjoyment. He is capable of lifting the compositions to a level of such quality, that even hardcore musicians get inspired by the innovative tunes"
