sounds of our town

hosted by Jumping Fences


Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the regular performance space for Jumping Fences, where we hold concerts on the First Friday of every month.

Live-streaming on Friday 5th June, 8pm

Undeterred by COVID-19, Foco Nuevo continues! Our June concert brings together contributions from three Cuban musicians to create a Foco Nuevo like we've never had before.

This month's guests include Alex Mendez in Copenhagen, Heidi Igualada in Havana and Frank Gonzalez in New Jersey, US.

We first met Alex, Frank and Heidi in 1996 during a three month visit to Havana, where we discovered a new generation of singer/songwriters emerging out of the grim days following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the subsequent devastating impact on the Cuban economy. Since those days our friendship and respect or these musicians has continued to grow. We are excited that they are finally able to join us for Foco Nuevo.

We hope you can tune in.
