Cuban Band London play authentic Cuban son, the intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African rhythms that gave rise to salsa. They give this irresistible music a contemporary edge, bringing their audiences a truly, sensational, authentic Latin music experience and their music is guaranteed to turn any event into a fiesta!

The Cuban Band has a flexible line-up that can be tailored to match every occasion. Playing as a traditional Cuban septeto, the band performs with 7 musicians - lead vocalist, trés (Cuban mandolin), guitar, bass, trumpet and two percussionists.

The group are having a very exciting year so far with an Arts Council Tour underway, a new album in the pipeline and lots of amazing festivals already confirmed including Glastonbury, The Manchester Jazz Festival and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo - to name but a few!

Since their debut album 'La Maravilla' was released to rave reviews (**** Songlines, The Evening Standard) at the end of 2012, the band have gone from strength to strength. Last year's highlights included playing at The Cork Jazz Festival, The Shetland Folk Festival, The Africa Oye Festival and a live session for Sean Rafferty on BBC Radio 3.

On vocals, and minor percussion, Yuri is an accomplished international singer with a sparkling personality, having performed with the likes of Cachaito of the Buena Vista Social Club.

Red hot rhythms – straight from the streets of Santiago de Cuba.
