Trip Into Friendship is the project of three musician friends celebrating their long friendship with music. Orlando ""Maraca"" Valle in Havana, Orlando Poleo in Caracas and Gerard Naulet in Paris have been friends for 20 years. This recording under Orlando ""Maraca"" Valle's brilliant artistic direction and Orlando Poleo's exceptional rhythmic pulse, with a supporting wink from Gerard Naulet for Latin-jazz, help traditional melodies of Cuba music meet the original compositions of the three musician friends. The ""trip"" is a tribute to Latin-American music. Getting together a world-class group of musician friends during a stay in the Norman Countryside, because music knows no boundaries, and celebrating Cuban and Latin-American traditions, is the invitation offered by Gerard Naulet and his ""Amigos"" with this festive and passionate trip. This album is dedicated to Alena, Orlando Valle's daughter; for whom he wrote the very beautiful same name melody during the recording.
