Album Notes
"Pepito Gomez is one of the best voices of Cuba today" - Omara Portuondo, Buena Vista Social Club

Conjunto Guantánamo - Sizzling Ambassadors of Cuban Folklore - have arrived with a freshly interpreted, classic Afro-Cuban sound. Lively percussion, pounding syncopated bass lines, brazenly exotic trumpet melodies, uninhibited improvisation and the sultry, sexy, dynamic lead vocal of Pepito Gomez positively scorch in a variety of vintage and original compositions. Conjunto Guantánamo unite the precision and cadence of traditional Afro-Cuban music with the raw energy and edge of New York City’s unique nightlife. Salsa lovers rejoice! Conjunto Guantánamo brings you the origins and essence of what music lovers today mostly know as Salsa.

Conjunto Guantánamo's soulful sound is layered with authentic Cuban swing and sophisticated influences like "el barbaro" Benny More, Arsenio Rodriguez, Roberto Faz, and Miguelito Cuní. Playing authentic traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms like Son Montuno, Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo and Rumba with contemporary energy, their performances sometimes transition into extended experimental descargas -- a type of Afro-Cuban improvisational jam session -- using musical motifs straight from the streets of Havana and Matanzas, as well as some modern day Timba combined with the very spirit of New York City.

Since Conjunto Guantánamo was founded in 2003, they’ve become highly visible on the NYC nightlife scene, performing at festivals, dance parties, and events and venues as diverse as The Museum of Modern Art and the grand opening of the IKEA store in RedHook (an all weekend affair!). The band inspires thousands of New Yorkers and visitors to swivel their hips in the name of Latin passion. Sting, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz, Mike Myers, Mickey Rourke, Leonardo DiCaprio, and other stars have made surprise audience appearances at places like the West Village's celebrated Socialista, where Conjunto Guantánamo have previously played a weekly residency.

Founder Ulises Beato and Pepito Gomez, Sebastian Natal, Carlos Mena, Oscar Onoz and Mauricio Herrera are the unique and celebrated musicians who create this unique sound. You can find Conjunto Guantánamo at select venues around New York City and the Tri-State Area every week. Just follow the smoking beat and the baile apasionado - or please check our calendar on our official Web site.
