The Tres and Cuban Music

The Tres guitar is the national instrument of Cuba and it gave birth to some of today's most important musical patterns. Salsa emerged from the first chords of Tres Cubano, as did other more primitive genres such as Changui, Kiriva and Nengon. The designs known as montuno piano and the most famous melodies of Cuba have their origins on the Tres. The instrument is similar to the acoustic guitar but with a different construction and string arrangement; the Tres has three pairs of steel strings, so its sound is strong and bright. It is fair to say that the Tres is recognized worldwide as the sound of Cuba.

About Renesito Avich From Latin Jazz Network, Aug, 2014

René Avich Wanton, new exponent of the Tres guitar in Cuba. Winner of several national competitions: Festival Contest “Ignacio Piñeiro”, “Cubadisco Award 2011″, “Competition Ignacio Villa AHS” 2013. Gold Title of the University of the Arts of Cuba. Cubadisco 2014 Award with the production Jóvenes Treseros de Cuba (Young Tres players of Cuba).

The creative work of Renesito, who was born in Santiago de Cuba, fully exploits the physiognomic possibilities and techniques of the instrument with a brilliant concept of interpretative excellence. His compositions denote a broad conception of the sound of the Cuban Tres, in which he uses expressive resources of Classical music, Jazz and World Music. Its roots lead him to recreate and develop melodies, rhythms, styles and rhythms of the Trova, the Changüí Nengón, the Conga, Rumba and Son Santiago, making a kind of journey through the different playing styles of the eastern country, mixed with the urban concept of Arsenio Rodríguez and Child Rivera.
