¡VAYA! 63

 

Selected as the "Best Cuban Band" by New York Latin Magazine in 2017 and "Best Band in Manhattan" by WNYC in 2017, the explosive Los Habaneros are a force to behold onstage—and for tonight’s party, on the dance floor. Mixing musical styles from their home in Cuba with the diversity of sounds they encountered when they made New York City their home, Los Habaneros transcend traditional musical genres to create a real fusion that provokes fans into hip-shaking abandon. The band is made up of a young generation of Havana-trained musicians, including director and singer Gerardo Contino, artistic director and pianist Axel Tosca Laugart, and percussionist Yusnier Sanchez Bustamante. The band's first album, Somos Latinos (2013), was released to very high critical acclaim. It was produced by Latin Grammy-nominated Luisito Quintero, and included five-time Grammy Award–winning bassist John Benitez. Their second album, Los Habaneros, will be released in 2018.
