Tiempo Libre

Two-time Grammy-nominated Tiempo Libre is one 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 La ENA, Cuba's premiere conservatory 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.

Each tune seems to literally dance ...

Tiempo Libre: Back in Havana

Read "Tiempo Libre: Back in Havana" reviewed by Luellen Smiley

Sometimes an interview with a musician goes deeper than a narrative history of recordings, concert calendar and early training.

Tiempo Libre: Bach in Havana

Read "Bach in Havana" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki
