Cimafunk & La Tribu


Cimafunk is a two-time Grammy-nominated, Afro-Cuban Rockstar tearing up
stages across the globe with his 9-piece band from Havana, the Tribe. His name
refers to his heritage as a “cimarrón,” Cubans of African descent who resisted
and escaped slavery, as well as to the essence of his music, which aims to subvert
classical Cuban rhythms with innovative mixes of funk and AfroCuban.
Considered one of today’s great showmen, Cimafunk became the first Cuban-born
artist to play Coachella. The non-stop, action-packed live show has won the praise
of the likes of Paul McCartney and George Clinton, who refers to Cimafunk as “the
next one.”

Cimafunk and the Tribe’s live show is a celebration of groove and an
unforgettable sonic and bodily experience, forcing out-of-body experiences for
crowds at Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, BottleRock, Glastonbury, New Orleans
Jazz, Newport Jazz, Montreal Jazz, Paleo, Roskilde, Summer Sonic and hundreds of
other festivals around the world. Cimafunk is redefining contemporary Cuban
music as well as Afro-Latin identity and the fusion of black cultures. His last
album, El Alimento (the nutrient), was nominated at the 2023 GRAMMY
Awards for Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album. His August 2024 album, Pa’
tu Cuerpa (for your body), includes collaborations with George Clinton, Trombone
Shorty, Big Freedia, Monsieur Perine, and Michael Brun.
