“Lyrical, complex and caffeinated . . . this is physical, cerebral, and spiritual music, with a lot of stories to tell.” —DownBeat

Saxophonist, percussionist, and composer Yosvany Terry comes from an influential musical family in Camagüey, Cuba—his father led one of Cuba’s most respected Charanga groups. This tradition is infused in the music he creates today, combined with the fruits of his own artistic journey through Caribbean, West and Central African, and European harmonic traditions. Yosvany fuses the instrumentation and ground rules of the classic hard-bop quintet with the rhythmic savvy of Afro-Cuban music to create ambitious compositions. He has collaborated with the likes of Rufus Reid, Vijay Iyer, Eddie Palmieri, Silvio Rodriguez, and many others. In 2015, he received a Grammy nomination for his album New Throned King. A natural teacher and cultural ambassador, Yosvany has served such notable institutions as Princeton University, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, NYU, and Columbia University. In 2015, he joined the full-time faculty at Harvard University as Senior Lecturer and Director of Jazz Ensembles in the Department of Music.
