Alex Cuba

Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner, singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition and has immense musical vision.  His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba, he was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father’s group of 24 guitarists. Alex then went on to study electric guitar and upright bass, and began touring and recording nationally and internationally.  Relocating to Canada in 1999, Alex went on to record his solo debut album Humo De Tobaco (produced by Martin Terefe), which earned him a Juno award for World Music Album of the Year in 2006, with tours in Canada, Japan and the US. His latest album, Sublime, incorporates the feel of Lo Unico Constante (his 6th album released in 2017) and features 6 duets alongside Latin American Singer-songwriters celebrating a contemporary or Neo folk expression of the Canción Latin americana.
