Santiago Jimenez Borges

Havana, Cuba

About this artistSantiago has, besides his amazing musical skills, developed a universal language using the one and only word "takata". Auto-rickshaw drivers didn't always get that language instantly when he asked to takata him takata direction for takata Indian rupees. Walking down the streets with Santiago is guaranteed fun. He seems to know half of the neighborhood and everybody seems to get his language. "Takataaa! Party upstairs!" we heard from a second floor window. Santiago made me curious to visit his hometown Havana. According to him, this is the Cuban lifestyle. Playing music, partying, dancing and drinking. Maybe I've spent many lines to describe his wonderful character, but I can explain his musical side in one word "professional". Impressive, it was just a matter of plugging in the mic and pressing record. He didn't need anything more to record a perfect violin layer instantly.
