FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GRAMMY-NOMINATED CUBAN BAND-LEADER / FLAUTIST ‘MARACA' AND HIS LATIN JAZZ SALSA GROUP IS BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND FROM A SUCCESSFUL 25 CITY 2011 U.S. SUMMER TOUR TO PERFORM MORE CONCERTS IN SEPTEMBER 2011 TO PROMOTE HIS NEW HIT TIMBA SINGLE "PREGUNTALE A MI MUJER" AND
TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF HIS LATEST CD/DVD "REENCUENTROS"

(LOS ANGELES - August 24, 2011) Orlando ‘Maraca' Valle's new single PREGUNTALE A MI MUJER (http://www.reverbnation.c...) debuted to critical-acclaim on June 14th, when Maraca's 2011 U.S. tour was kicked off at the Napa Valley Opera House. PREGUNTALE A MI MUJER is Maraca's New Timba Hit Single and has been, and will continue be the centerpiece of his U.S Tour, which included appearances at the most prestigious venues and festivals including; Yoshis in San Francisco, Boulder Theater in Colorado, Detroit Institute of Arts, Aspen Jazz Festival, Folk and Roots Festival in Chicago, Sioux Falls Jazz & Blues Festival, Kennedy Center in DC, Salt lake City jazz Festival, and more, for special performances led by Orlando Valle (bandleader, flute), with his top notch group composed of some of Cuba's finest musicians.

PREGUNTALE A MI MUJER is an infectious "TIMBA" groove, which is already a radio hit and has been electrifying audiences at live shows throughout the country with Maraca's signature complex flute arrangements woven flawlessly into an irresistible Timba beat. PREGUNTALE A MI MUJER is of dance music grounded in Cuban tradition and influenced by current trends.

REENCUENTROS, Maraca's new latin jazz double CD/DVD album, has just been released on CDBaby and is available for purchase (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/maracahislatinjazzallsta). This all-star summit orchestrated and reunited by "Maraca" was recorded live on the mythical stage of the Grand Theater of Havana. This classical-meets -jazz blend recording takes us to a magical journey from the roots of Cuban music to contemporary afro-cuban jazz...Maraca's "Reencuentros, Live at the Grand Theater of Havana" is the witness of this historic sold-out and unique concert recorded live in Latin America's most prestigious opera house. See the trailer of this show at http://www.youtube.com/wa...

Featuring Latin-jazz titans Giovanni Hidalgo (congas), David Sanchez (tenor sax), Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez (drums), Harold Lopez-Nussa (piano), Hugh Fraser (trombone), Julio Padrón (trumpet), Feliciano Arango (bass), Yusef Diaz (keyboards), Sayaka (violin) and the Havana Chamber Orchestra.

"It takes something like Live At The Grand Theater of Havana to make you prick up your ears and renew your faith in the music." Nat Chediak

"You are holding in your hands a CD of Maraca and his Latin Jazz All Stars which is a rare gem indeed." Leonardo Acosta

Maraca & His Latin All Stars, 'Reencuentros' has been chosen as a DownBeat's Editors' Pick' of the month of August '11 E-Newsletter (www.downbeat.com/default.asp'sect=reviews). As per Downbeat editor Aaron Cohen, "Orlando Valle "Maraca" seems poised to reach the highest and most exclusive echelon in the world of Afro Caribbean music and Latin Jazz. Maraca is not content to have lush strings and strong percussion serve as the background to his improvisational flights on such standards as "Manteca." His skills as a composer and arranger keep the music constantly shifting in surprising directions, like on. "Danzón Siglo XXI"

REENCUENTROS is an album enriched with Classical, Cuban, Jazz and Latin Jazz musical styles. It
was recorded on Descarga Sarl, an independent label based in Paris, France, and owned by Orlando "Maraca" Valle and Celine Chauveau. Co-Producers: CEGIN PRODUCTIONS, ALEX SINO for PIER 5, BLARD PNEUS. Promo info / Management: Céline Chauveau, maraca@cubarte.cult.cu , maraca@wanawdoo.fr , www.myspace.com/maracathe...
