Event Preview: Cimafunk @ Village Underground (London; Thursday 28th July 2022)

Cimafunk_02

A born-and-bred Cuban musician is sensational by definition. Try to imagine how nifty a Cuban musician can be who’s labelled as “the new sensation” also in his very own country.

On Thursday 28th of July, thanks to ¡Como No!, London and Village Underground are finally going to be blown away by the funkiest salsero who has ever beaten his restless dancing feet on a stage.

Born in Pinar del Rio, but artistically grown in Havana, Cimafunk has brought not just a breath of fresh air, but a good and proper tropical storm to the Cuban music scene.

In fact, Cimafunk hasn’t only shaped his sound listening to Cuban traditional salsa, guaguancó, rumba and son to the point of exhaustion, but he also wore down the collection of 1970s and 80s American funk, R&B, and soul albums of his parents.

So much so, in little more than five years, the medical student of Pinar del Rio has grown into the “Cuban James Brown”.

So, save the date, rest yourself and don’t bother to polish your best dancing shoes, you will end up tearing them apart anyway following or more likely chasing the one and only funky cimarrón.
