Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner and singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition; he has a vast musical vision. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape.

Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father’s (respected guitarist and teacher Valentin Puentes) group of 24 guitarists. Alex then went to study electric and upright bass and touring and recording nationally and internationally. In1999, Alex moved to Victoria, BC where he recorded an album titled Morumba Cubana alongside his twin brother Adonis, as The Puentes Brothers.Since then Cuba has gone on to record six solo albums which have won several Juno’s and multiple Latin Grammy Awards.

Kick back and savour this intricate music which reflects Latin and African influences,along with a healthy mix of funk, jazz and pop.

“[His] songs blend graceful melodies, intricate guitar and percussion patterns, unusual arrangements, and superb vocals into a delightful and airy whole.”–Mariano Prunes, ALL MUSIC
