Simply an outstanding collective with a new generation of Cuban musicians. The members have played with all the Cuban greats, among them former artists at Nattjazz Omara Portuondo, Buena Vista Social Club and Tony Allen. Together they chart a new course for the "cuban groove", all the while respecting and cherishing the the traditions of Chucho Valdés, Gabriel Hernandez and the like. Afrobeat, funk and latin jazz mixed with musical generosity stage presence and an energy that is simply, well, contagious.
