Cimafunk is by far the most exciting new face in the Latin music space. Along with his 8 piece band, the young Cuban sensation offers a subtle and bold mix of funk with Cuban music and African rhythms, which is currently revolutionizing the island’s music scene. Cimafunk is a cimarrón*, a free being defying classification, a pilgrim in search of new musical miscegenation and the reunion of black music. 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. His debut album “Terapia” and especially his electric live shows have conquered a multitude of audiences from Havana and New York to Madrid and Paris. His single “Me Voy” is a major hit in Cuba and its refrain, which is on everyone’s mouth, is now part of the pop culture, and NPR listed his song “El Potaje” as No. 6 best song of 2019. A strong performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, an upcoming sophomore album (Oct 2021) and appearances at some of the world’s biggest festivals has Cimafunk quickly on the rise. He makes his DC return at Union Stage, brining that Afro-Cuba funk directly from Havana to the nation’s capital.

* Fugitive slaves who settled in the wild to lead a free life in Cuba.
