The music is back! Join us for Global Cuba Fest, a month-long celebration of the best musicians from the Cuban diaspora. This year, Miami Light Project and FUNDarté have collaborated with Nu Deco Ensemble, The Light Box’s orchestra-in-residence specializing in contemporary music. Come enjoy an evening of music from rising young Cuban composers, iconic masters, and a unique collaboration with our special musical guest artists from the Island of Cuba, Yusa.



Launched by Miami Light Project and FUNDarte in 2008, Global Cuba Fest is an internationally acclaimed celebration of the rhythms, music and culture of Cuba. Annually, Global Cuba Fest enriches Miami’s musical scene with the sounds of today’s leading musicians direct from Cuba and from the Cuban diaspora. The 2019 festival edition features Nu Deco Ensemble with special musical guest from Cuba.


Based in Miami, Nu Deco Ensemble is a virtuosic and eclectic chamber orchestra designed for the 21st century. Through exciting and adventurous classical music performances, Nu Deco Ensemble presents various styles of music, art, and media collaborations in both traditional and alternative venues.

Working in conjunction with local musicians, composers, DJs, dancers, visual and media artists, Nu Deco Ensemble creates a new hybrid of compelling musical and multi-media experiences. Blending masterful musicianship with a wide range of repertoire from classical to pop, Nu Deco Ensemble strives to be South Florida’s leader in genre-bending musical exploration.


Born in the Buena Vista district of Havana, Yusa is perfectly at ease playing guitar, bass, keyboard or percussion instruments. Her voice is also a powerful instrument! Yusa’s music is defined as a young and thoroughly modern musical style laced with funk, jazz, rap, and soul influences, but holding on tightly to its African and Caribbean roots.
