(Dallas, Texas) Super talented William Vivianco of Havana, Cuba will release his next, much anticipated single, titled, Bailarina, worldwide with Dallas, Texas’ own Music Access, Inc., on Friday, August 11, 2017. The new single will be available everywhere digital music is sold, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play and more.


William Vivanco (born October 6, 1975, in SantiagoCuba) is a composer and musician. Vivanco learned to play guitar by frequenting Casa de la Trova on Calle Heredia in Santiago, “stealing chords”. He busked in the streets, and also performed with a professional children’s choir. He trained his voice, learning the techniques that would enable him to develop his distinctively percussive vocal style. He also played day-long romerias and at the Festival of Singers of the Americas in Guantánamo.

Vivanco first came to Havana when he was 23 years old. The Bis Music label at the Santa Clara song festival spotted him and offered him the possibility to make his first solo album in 2002 called Lo Tengo To’ Pensa’o, a mix of Brazilian musicpop and reggae. His song and the accompanying video clip “Cimarrón” became popular. “Cimarrón” (literally, “one who lives on mountaintops”) refers to African slaves who ran away from their Spanish masters.

In 2006, Vivanco recorded his second solo album, La Isla Milagrosa, produced by Descemer Bueno and Roberto Carcassés. In recent times Vivanco has started to distance himself from his funkier, poppier tunes in favour of music that is more “Santiaguera” (from Santiago), more Cuban, more rhythmic – more traditional.

Vivanco has performed in France. In 2003 he performed at Les Transmusicales de Rennes festival, then in 2004 at the Paleo Festival de Nyon, at the Cuban night of Les Nuits de Fourvière de Lyon, and in August 2005 he played at the Vence festival Les Nuits du Sud. (Source: Wikipedia).

Rikki Rincón, President of Music Access Latino, a division of Music Access, Inc. stated “After several on and off discussions with Mr. William Vivanco since 2016 and being introduced via a industry colleague, this was always a wonderful idea that eventually came to fruition. We at Music Access, Inc. are very excited to work with the very talented singer/songwriter/producer William Vivanco. After seeing his work with some of Cuba’s best talent over the past decade or so and then getting know him as a person, we are more than convinced that beyond his talent he is a down to earth person, one we hope to grow with”. 

William Vivanco clearly states this about the new single, Bailarina inspirada en el poema de Jose Marti.:La bailarina española. Mesclada con musica arabe,española, celta quisomba y regetton”. “The song Bailarina was inspired in the poem by Jose Marti: The Spanish Bailarina. Music mixed with sounds of arabic, spanish, celtic kizomba and a little bit of reggaeton”.
