Cuba Classico

classical music with latin vibes

In January 2021 Fadi teamed up with a friend composer Fritz Wengler from Berlin to rewrite 13 most notable classical pieces for a salsa big band. "We started the project in late January playing some ideas on the piano in Fritz’s studio. After that 2 months of researching, arranging and mock-up scoring followed. In the meantime I got in touch with Sascha at Warner Chappell and told him about our idea, he got on board and said we could release it as a production music album (for sync rights etc.).

Arranging classical pieces to fit with a salsa vibe was surprisingly easy. Classical music is structured and there are plenty of recognisable themes within one piece that could be used in the salsa music. Melodies can easily be rhythmically changed to fit the Latin vibe while still retaining the authenticity and thus, in retrospect, we were spoilt for choice. What we didn’t want to do was to create complex structures that exist in classical music. We wanted to make them easy on the year and above all we wanted people to dance to them.


1. April 2021, Book Release

In 20019 Fadi started contributing articles to a well-known expat publisher I am expat in Germany, a little over a year after his first article, he published the complete guide.  


An expat's guide to Living inGermany

As a British national living in Germany, Fadi found it difficult to adapt to the German way of life at first. He constantly bemoaned their lack of a sense of humour, the overly-direct approach; the lack of tact, the non-existence of customer-service, the staggering bureaucracy and many other aspects of everyday life one faces in the Bundesrepublik. However, where many of us expats would have packed our stuff and left, Fadi decided to ‘stick it out’ . Tired of banging his head against a wall he quietly decided to write a book.
“It was an epiphany. All of a sudden if I was frustrated with something, instead of venting it at other people, I wrote it down on a piece of paper - it was like meditating”.
It turned out that Fadi was very frustrated indeed.
His style pays homage to Bill Bryson; written with a light anecdotal tone, often mixed in with a dollop of self-mockery, giving a vivid account of German society as a whole.
