Yuma De Cuba
On the streets of Havana, the term "yuma" equates to foreigner, but it is also used to distinguish something as authentic and original. Thus, it is the perfect descriptor for this mix of Cuban and American musicians performing original Cuban music. Portland, Oregon based Yuma de Cuba incorporates all the rhythm and energy of a full salsa band within a smaller format that allows for quieter and more intimate experiences. Drawing on the rich musical legacy of Cuba mixed with strong jazz and funk roots, Yuma de Cuba creates music that is truly 'yuma." Led by pianist and composer Ethan Maier, Yuma de Cuba features the top players of the Portland latin music scene for an unforgettable experience.
