Miami Light Project and FUNDarte Present
Global Cuba Fest 2016

March 12-19, 2016
The Music is back! Miami Light Project and FUNDarte are proud to present the 9th Annual Global Cuba Fest from March 12, 2016 to March 19, 2016 featuring Cuban music’s most exciting musical acts at the Miami Dade County Auditorium and The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse in Wynwood.
For nearly a decade, Miami Light Project and FUNDarte have brought their popular music series to South Florida, celebrating the roots of Cuban music and the genre’s funkiest innovations exploring jazz, son montuno, bolero, trova, timba and Afro-Cuban rhythms. This year’s lineup is packed with new voices and established masters alike from Cuba and Spain. The program includes sets by Iván “Melon” Lewis, one of the most recognized jazz pianists of his generation; by Yadam, the singer songwriter who has recently escalated from a young promising artist to an established voice in the music scene; by Pavel Urkiza y La Ruta de las Almas Band, a musical journey without precedent directed by a Cuban artist who fuses traditional Sephardic sounds with Afro-Latin music; and by Daymé Arocena, an exceptional young Cuban vocalist turning heads and catching ears.
The festival kicks off with an opening night celebrating Cuban diaspora in Spain at the Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33135) on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
All other performances are at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse (404 NW 26th Street, Miami, FL 33127) in Wynwood on Thursday, March 17, 2016 and Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
