Cuba L.A. keeps the soul of Cuban music alive, fueled by the love of their heritage and the exhilaration of musical experimentation.
Led by Danilo Lozano, flutist, a founding member of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, ad musicologist – Cuba L.A. is a dream team of Cuban musicians living in Los Angeles. The band has grown a reputation for percussive and melodic fireworks – poly-rhythmic timbales, congas and bongos provide an unbelievable backdrop to scorching performances on trumpets, flute, piano, and strings.
Cuba L.A. evolves into a sensational, category-defying experience. Coming from Los Angeles “a cultural hub, we’re able to easily bring in so many musical sensibilities to the traditional music – Afro-Cuban, Latin jazz, and dance music…it’s all here, and it’s all a part of Cuban music today,” says Lozano.
Cuba L.A. begins with traditional Cuban Music. Mixing rhythms, forms and instrumentation from different regions of Cuba, the group creates their own lush ensemble sound.
