Overview

Two-time Grammy®-nominated Tiempo Libre is one of the hottest young Latin bands today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs, and dance venues, the members of the Miami-based band are true modern heirs to the rich tradition of the music of their native Cuba.

Tiempo Libre's members were all classically trained at Cuba's premiere conservatories during a time when it was illegal to listen to American songs on the radio. Now, the group is a hit in the U.S. and abroad, celebrated for its incendiary, joyful performances of timba, an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of high-voltage Latin jazz and the seductive rhythms of son.

Their debut CD for Sony Masterworks, Bach in Havana, unites the two musical worlds of Tiempo Libre's Cuban upbringing. The album connects the rhythm and sensibilities of Afro-Cuban music with the compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach and features special guest appearances by the legendary Paquito D’Rivera and Cuban-born sax player Yosvany Terry.
