The three-time Grammy nominated Cuban timba group Tiempo Libre is proud that there hasn't been a concert yet where people haven't danced in the aisles. Having toured worldwide and performed on The Tonight Show and Dancing with the Stars, the members of the Miami-based group have come a long way from their days studying classical music in Cuba's rigorous music conservatories.
To Tiempo Libre’s seven members, music isn’t just a way of life, it’s a way of experiencing living. They approach their concerts as Cuban music parties. Audience members may choose whether to be a guest who sits back and enjoys the sophisticated music performed by these conservatory-trained musicians or one who claps, dances and sings along to the band’s joyous sound.
Be warned: their sound is infectious, their exuberance contagious and their beat just may hijack your body from the waist down.
