Timba Battle: Timbalive versus Tiempo Libre

Timba Battle: Timbalive versus Tiempo Libre

As part of Miami Beach Sleepless Night 2011, FUNDarte proudly presents “Timba Battle” featuring Timbalive versus Tiempo Libre. Timbalive burst onto Miami’s music scene in August 2008 under the direction of founder Leo Garcia, offering the best of Cuban Music with a mix of rhythms from around the world. Timbalive is currently one of the largest and most successful Timba bands in the world. Three-time Grammy-nominated Tiempo Libre, under the direction of founder Jorge Gomez, is also one the hottest young Latin bands on the scene today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs and dance venues, the members of this Miami-based band are true modern heirs to the rich tradition of music from their native Cuba. Tiempo Libre’s members were all classically trained at Cuba’s premiere conservatory. This evening of musical  extravaganza is celebrated for its incendiary, joyful performances of timba, and an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of high-voltage Latin jazz in a non-stop three-hour dance concert!
