The three-time Grammy-nominated Cuban music group

Tiempo Libre is one the hottest young Latin bands today.

Modern heirs to the

rich tradition of the music of their native Cuba, they reinterpret,

re-invigorate, and re-invent a new style born from the meeting of their Cuban

roots and their new American experience.

Named “Best Latin Band 2008,” the

seven extraordinary musicians came together in between projects to realize a

musical dream to create the first authentic all-Cuban timba band in the United

States, hence the name Tiempo Libre (“Free Time”), which also translates into

an exuberant dancing-in-the-aisles time.
