Latin rhythms meet funk as Cuban music breakout, Cimafunk, brings his Afro-Cuban soul to National Sawdust.
Singer, composer and producer, Cimafunk boldly mixes funk with Cuban music and African rhythms. His electric live shows have inexorably conquered audiences from Havana to Paris. Called “the James Brown of Cuba” (Miami Herald) and “Cuba’s 2018 revelation of the year,” Cimafunk was named one of Billboard’s 10 Latin Artists to Watch in 2019.
Don’t miss the Cuban sensation, whose smash hit, Me Voy, has been playing everywhere from Miami bars to European dance clubs, on his first U.S. tour.
Cimafunk is the most exciting new face in Cuba’s music scene. Named by Billboard as a “Top 10 Latin Artist to Watch in 2019” and with two primetime showcases at South by Southwest 2019, he’s causing waves with his fresh, unique and unparalleled Cuban Funk. He’s considered 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.
Singer, composer and producer, Cimafunk offers a subtle and bold mix of funk with Cuban music and African rhythms, a life- affirming sound, a UFO in the island’s music scene. His debut album “Terapia” (Independent Production, 2017) and especially his electric live shows are inexorably conquering a multitude of audiences from Havana to Austin to Paris. Cimafunk broke attendance records in iconic Cuban venues such as the Fabrica de Arte Cubano, El Sauce and La Tropical. He’ll be touring the United States with his full band, including congas, horns and much more, with shows at prestigious venues like Tipitina’s in New Orleans, Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago and the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
