Latin Jazz & More
Three-time Grammy-nominated Afro-Caribbean music group Tiempo Libre is one of the hottest Latin bands today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs, festival stages and dance venues. Tiempo Libre is celebrated for its sophisticated tropical music featuring an irresistible, exhilarating mix of jazz harmonies, contemporary sonorities and seductive Latin rhythms.
Throughout the past 14 years, the band has appeared around the globe and has been featured on television shows including The Tonight Show, Live from Lincoln Center, and Dancing with the Stars as well as many entertainment programs on Univision and Telemundo. Since the group’s formation in Miami 2001, its members have been on a mission to share their Afro-Caribbean heritage with as wide an audience as possible, reinterpreting and reinvigorating music born from the meeting of their musical origins with their new American experience.
Tiempo Libre’s 2015-16 season finds the band promoting the new album in places as far afield as Beijing, China, on a two week tour of Spain, as well as on a week-long tour in the United Kingdom culminating with a performance at the London Jazz Festival.
Highlights of their concerts in the U.S. include multiple performances in New York City’s hottest new Latin club Subrosa, as well as concerts in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Later in the season they will travel back to New York City for a return appearance at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.Tiempo Libre will perform live on stage every night during the five-week run of the new musical, Cuba Libre, which will receive its world premiere on October 10, 2015 at the Winningstad Theatre in Portland, Oregon.
