CIMAFUNK fans, rejoice! This Thursday is the artist’s Canadian debut show, presented by Shenkman Arts Centre and Axé Worldfest. Get ready for the sounds of Cuban music mixed with Afro-Latin and fusion of Black cultures. Cimafunk is an Afro-Cuban rockstar who is not to be missed. By bringing out the best in Cuban rhythms and traditions, and infusing sounds and styles from Africa and the U.S., Cimafunk has created something unique and special.
According to The New York Times, Cimafunk is on a “Quest to Create One Nation Under a Groove.” NPR says he’s on his way to “world domination by way of the funk and clave,” and Rolling Stone describes his music as “an electrifying combination of funk and soul, layered over the five-beatclave, or the heartbeat of Cuban music, brought to Cuba by enslaved people from West Africa.”
Over on our @apt613 Instagram, we are running a giveaway to this amazing show, so both diehard fans and CIMAFUNK newbies can groove together at Shenkman Arts.
