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

CLICK HERE to begin.

During these uncertain times we are continuing to stream Foco Nuevo via our Jumping Fences Facebook page and we are pleased to again feature contributions from international guest musicians.

This month we bring you performances by guest musicians Silvio Alejandro and Duo Jade from Cuba, and Raúl Gasca Toache (better known simply as Toache) from Mexico

We've been lucky to see Duo Jade's impressive performances on different occasions in Havana and we are excited that they are able to join us online this month. Toache is a consumate musician and we've been discussing with him the possibility of a visit to Australia for some years now. At last we can welcome him to Foco Nuevo! Silvio Alejandro is an exuberant singer/songwriter who has been running his own music venue in Havana, 'Tres Tazas', for the past 12 years.

We are thrilled to share some of the music from these friends, we're sure you will enjoy this special event.

We are sure that it will be an event not to be missed! Go to our Facebook event page to register, and you will receive a notification when the streaming starts.
