Cuba based rap duo, Zona Franka, blends traditional rhythms with the grit and swagger of hip-hop and rap vocal phrasings. Their clever shout choruses create instant tropical dance classics using their unique self-titled "changui con flow" style.

Corista for Bamboleo since 2003, Liena stands to become one of the few (if not the only) female brass players in timba, as soon as director Lázaro Valdéz writes some trombone material for her. She's looking forward to getting back to playing the instrument she was trained on, as she did in Anacaona. In the mean time, alongside singers Tanja and Alain, her look (she shaved her head when she joined the group) and energy are like a link to Bamboleo frontwomen of years past. [Lara Greene]

cuban music, musica cubana [Update] Liena left Bamboleo to begin work with her own group in Brazil.
