Pianist Michel Camilo and guitarist Tomatito jointly create a unique mix of music which is definitely worth listening to. We are sure that the Dvořák Hall of Rudolfinum will even more highlight the drama of this luxury musical performance in which you will be able to hear flamenco, Caribbean rhythms as well as jazz.

The two performers completely understand their instruments, one could even say forming one whole. To see these artists in the flesh is a real experience. Their last album called Spain Forever was awarded the Latin Grammy for the best instrumental album.

Michel Camilo was a musical talent from early childhood

He comes from the exotic Dominican Republic and there was no doubt that he will become a talented musician thanks to his family which has music in its blood. As a small boy he played an accordion, but his musical soul drew him to the piano which was played by his grandfather. At nine years of age, his parents bought him his first piano, thus starting his career of a great pianist. He studied the National Conservatoire for 13 years and since 1979 he performs in the USA.
