One of the most wonderfully compelling Latin bands in New York City. This Afro-Cuban ensemble has an edge that’s often imitated but rarely expressed in its true flavor… A truly remarkable music experience for the heart, soul and feet.
Ambassadors of Cuban folklore, Conjunto Guantánamo, founded in 2003, unites the precision and cadence of traditional Afro-Cuban music with the raw energy and edge of New York City’s unique nightlife. Led by founder Ulises Beato, along with Pepito Gomez, Sebastian Natal, Carlos Mena, Oscar Onoz and Mauricio Herrera, Conjunto Guantánamo brings the origins and essence of what music lovers today mostly know as salsa, performing at festivals, dance parties, and venues throughout New York City.
