About The Event

The Cleveland Museum of Art is thrilled to present an intimate concert at The Transformer Station featuring Alex Cuba.

Alex Cuba (born Alexis Puentes) is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist who sings in both Spanish and English. He has released nine albums and won a Grammy Award, two Juno Awards, and four Latin Grammy Awards. He has also launched his own record label, Caracol Records.

Cuba is known worldwide for his sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks, and powerful guitar riffs that relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. His musical evolution is about searching for the simplicity and soul in Cuban music—taking apart the complex arrangements, mixing these with North American influences, adopting the melodic simplicity of pop music, and looking to Cuban folk traditions for inspiration. He is always exploring, always creating something fresh and new, and always getting it just right.
