Cuban Music Sensation
“A distinctive voice of the Cuban diaspora… exuberant, surging with determination, the sound a fast-rising tide of adamant pride.” CNN
Multi-Grammy-nominated powerhouse Tiempo Libre is one of the hottest young Cuban bands today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs and dance venues, its Miami-based members are the true modern heirs to the rich music traditions of their native Cuba. Classically trained in the island’s premier conservatories and inspired by illicit jazz and R&B radio broadcasts they listened to in their childhoods, today the group is a hit in the U.S. and abroad. Tiempo Libre is celebrated for its sophisticated performances of timba, a joyous mix of high-voltage Latin jazz and the infectious rhythms of son, that leave audiences dancing in the aisles.
