Named “Best Latin Band of 2008” by the Miami New Times, Tiempo Libre bring a true Cuban experience to their audiences. All of Tiempo Libre’s members were classically trained at La ENA, Cuba’s premiere conservatory, and are now based in Miami. TL is becoming an international sensation, celebrated for its incendiary, joyful performances of timba, an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of high-voltage Latin jazz and the seductive rhythms of son.
Both of their previous releases have garnered Grammy nominations, and they released their third album, Bach in Havana, earlier this year. It is a fusion of Bach with Afro-Cuban rhythms featuring guest tracks by Paquito d’Rivera and Yosvany Terry.
