FD plays FD (Felipe Dulzaides plays Felipe Dulzaides)
2009 - 2015
FD plays FD is an interdisciplinary and a multi venue project inspired in the life and music career of Felipe Dulzaides’ father with whom the artist shares the same name.
Dulzaides 1917-1991 was a successful self-taught piano player, bandleader and an influential mentor to important musicians in Cuba.
At the 2015 Havana Biennial, the project was staged at an unused penthouse of the emblematic Focsa building. During the Biennial, two jam sessions in homage to Dulzaides sr. were organized
in collaboration with piano player Ernán López-Nussa. To revisit Dulzaides 1917-1991’ repertoire and sound Lopez-Nussa put together an ensemble with some of the best jazz musicians in Cuba today.
