Building a bridge between Hartford and Cuba.
“By all accounts Cuba’s 2018 revelation of the year.” – Billboard
“Una de las luces del futuro del continente.” – Fito Páez
“One of the artists with the most future in Cuban music.” – Radio Gladys Palmera
“…people scale buildings to see him play.” – Vistar Magazine
Cimafunk is a free being defying classification, 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.
“The concert begins and the audience enters a trance-like state, no one can stop dancing.” – Revista Garbos
