Press Clipping

Cimafunk is a cimarrón*, 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.

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 Paris. He broke attendance records in iconic venues such as the Fabrica de Arte Cubano, El Sauce, and La Tropical.
