Angel d'Cuba
Cuban soul! Rich, explosive, sublime. Angel has built a solid reputation in his homeland and now in the USA as a dynamic performer and blender of styles, as well as a master of pure traditional Cuban music. He and his group cannot only lay down the typical latin party music of salsa, cha cha chá and merengue, but also heart-melting boleros, tasty jazz, smokin' funk and jumpin' calypso. In addition Angel is a prolific songwriter, with compositions spanning the styles of salsa, timba, merengue, pop latino, jazz, funk, calypso, samba and more. A savory sampling of this will be available on the forthcoming CD.  

Angel d'Cuba, former lead singer with Cuban super-group Mezcla, now resides in Chicago and leads his own group. This group delivers blistering salsa, timba, soul, funk, calypso and reggae flavored with the real MÚSICA CUBANA! Must see and hear to appreciate!

 Some of the places Angel d'Cuba has performed are Taste of Chicago 2011, The Old Town School of Folk Music 2011, Chicago's Festival Cubano 2010, among many others.
