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.

In addition to excellent arranging and co-writing for Tiempo Libre, Jorge is a piano talent to be reckoned with, equally as comfortable with jazz as he is with his main focus, timba. He started Tiempo Libre as a side project (something to do with his "free time") in 2001 while he was playing for Albita. As the group started to get more concerts and pick up momentum, he took a leap of faith and made TL his full-time project. The risk turned out to be a fruitful one -- with a new album out in May 2005 and lots of concerts booked, Tiempo Libre is turning out to be the little side project that could.
