Since it started in 2008, this festival has brought Cuban music and the island’s different contemporary manifestations to different audiences.
Organized by FUNDarte and The Rhythm Foundation, the event is also a bridge between artists living in Cuba and those of the diaspora, who come together during the days of this festival, which also allows them to give greater international projection to their work.
Throughout its different editions, the Global Cuba Fest has hosted virtuoso musicians such as Tony Pérez, Yusa, Dafnis Prieto Sextet, Omar Sosa and Aymée Nuviola.
In the most recent edition in 2019, Cimafunk’s concert became one of the great events of the program and confirmed the driving force of this singer and composer both in Cuba and on American stages.
