Habana enTRANCE is the musical entity, created by Dayramir Gonzalez, which continues to illuminate the spirit of Cuban jazz. It is the train that carries the legacy of the many generations of Afro-Cuban music.
Habana enTRANCE electrifies the stage with a story and musical journey of the Afro-Cuban musical tradition. Consisting of piano, bass, drums, percussion, and horns, Dayramir & Habana enTRANCE’s wide range of musical styles, from piano solo to quartet to chamber orchestra, blends the sounds of early 20th century Classical Cuban music with the harmony and rhythm of contemporary jazz and highlights all musical chapters in between.
With its foundation based in its Afro-Cuban roots, Habana enTRANCE’s innovation, led by Gonzalez, explores a new territory of precious musical gems and brings to us its refined brilliance that is reflected in its own light, color and beauty. Throughout the world, Dayramir & Habana enTRANCE shares this musical wealth.
