Cimafunk is by far the most exciting new face in Cuba’s vibrant music scene.
Cimafunk is a cimarrón, a free being defying classification, a pilgrim in search of new musical miscegenation. He believes in nothing but the power of the Groove and the cathartic communion of dancing bodies. A renaissance man, conscious of his roots and musical ancestry, Cimafunk’s music looks firmly into the future. Singer, composer and producer, Cimafunk offers a subtle and bold mix of funk with Cuban music and African rhythms, a life-affirming sound, a UFO in the island’s music scene.
His debut album Terapia and especially his electric live shows have conquered audiences from Havana to New Orleans.
‘Cimafunk is a perfect mash up of Cuban music and James Brown with a big dose of Parliament Funkadelic.’ NPR
