Born into an illustrious musical family in Camaguey, Cuba, Yosvany Terry is an internationally acclaimed composer, saxophonist, percussionist, bandleader, educator, and cultural bearer of the Afro-Cuban tradition. After immersing himself in the European classical tradition at Havana’s prestigious National School of Arts (ENA) and Amadeo Roldan Conservatory he went on to perform with major figures in every realm of Cuban music, including celebrated nueva trova singer/guitarist Silvio Rodriguez, pianists Chucho Valdes and Frank Emilio, José Luis Cortes y NG la Band and Don Pancho y Los Terry, the band led by his father, violinist and chekeré master Eladio “Don Pancho” Terry. 2012’s Today’s Opinion (Criss Cross), was selected as one of the Top 10 Albums of the Year by The New York Times’ Nate Chinen, features his working Quintet and various guest artists. Terry’s two most recent releases feature co-led groups. The unique chamber ensemble Bohemian Trio, with cellist Yves Dharamraj and pianist Orlando Alonso, released Okónkolo in January 2017 (Innova), and Ancestral Memories, featuring a quartet with French pianist Baptiste Trotignon.
