Buena Fe Begin US Tour

Tonight @ James L. Knight Center

Tonight Buena Fe , Cuba's most popular trova-fusion band, kicks off their US tour with a concert at the James L. Knight center in Miami. From their humble beginnings as a duo in Guantanamo, Buena Fe has grown to become a mega-group on the island, with a fan base spanning ages 9 to 90 and a faithful international following as well. This year Buena Fe is working to increase their exposure throughout the Americas, and the US tour will include some firsts such as their first concerts in Puerto Rico, Houston and Tampa. Later this year they will tour Argentina and possibly Chile.

Musically Buena Fe mix pop and rock with just about anything they want: changüí, son, rumba, reggae. But what really makes Buena Fe stand out are the lyrics. Descendants of the Nueva Trova movement, they always have a message that is worth listening to whether they deliver it in a ballad or via double entendre in a changüí. Recent collaborations with timba and reggaeton bands include "La Carta" with Alain Daniel, "Esa mujer" with Orquesta Revé, "Cuba isla bella" with Orishas, and Los 4 who recorded a timbaton cover of Buena Fe's first hit "No juegues con mi soledad".

If you are unfamiliar with their music check out their Vevo page: BuenaFeVEVO . I wil just give you a sample of one of my favorites Pi 3,14 - which has now entered the vernacular as a popular refrain that you can hear in "Yo vengo de Cuba" by F Clan and Havana D'Primera. Click here for the list of tour dates and venues.

Cuba Isla Bella

Orishas First Single Since Reuniting

A few weeks ago when Orishas announced they were getting back together they really made my day. This is my kind of Cuban urban music with intelligent lyrics and a taste of son and Cuban music traditions combined with modern hip-hop. Today they released their first new single,  "Cuba Isla Bella" featuring a pantheon of guest artists from various genres: Buena Fe, Descemer Bueno, Issac Delgado, Leoni, Waldo Mendoza, Laritza Bacallao, Gente de Zona and Pedrito Martínez. You can buy the single at digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon.

Orishas will follow up the release of the new single with a US tour. Click here for the tour dates . Now sit back and enjoy "Cuba Isla Bella" and join me in hoping for a renaissance of Cuban hip-hop!
