Summer in the CityEn Talla, Featuring Sheila del Bosque
Born in 1994 in Havana, Sheila del Bosque is one of the most in-demand young flutists in Cuba. Her music features contemporary and traditional Afro-Cuban music with the influence of European and jazz ingredients.
Del Bosque, who has a background of ancient, classical, and Cuban popular music, plays the baroque recorder and modern transverse flute. She has played with orchestras such as Ars Longa, Orchestra of Lyceum Mozartian from Havana, and the National Orchestra of Cuba. She has toured the world with ensembles such as the dance company Habana Compas Dance and the Cuban European Youth Orchestra, playing for artists such as Usher, Bon Jovi, and the Rolling Stones.
Awarded a full-tuition scholarship, del Bosque enrolled in January 2018 at Berklee College of Music, where she has shared the stage with musicians such as Paquito d’Rivera, Berta Rojas, and Omar Hakim.
With a different sonority and an unusual format, En Talla displays influences from Latin jazz, Afro-Cuban, and traditional Cuban music.
