Named Cuba’s 2018 Artist of the Year by Vistar Magazine, Cimafunk is making his U.S. debut this spring on a cultural exchange program that will span a dozen cities from New York City to Los Angeles. Join Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA) and Music of the Americas for Cimafunk's first stop in New York City, in which the emerging artist will join a panel with AS/COA Cuba Working Group head and YPA Executive Director Alana Tummino and President of Cuba Educational Travel Collin Laverty. Cimafunk will discuss his unique, bold sound, his journey as a singer, composer, and producer in Cuba, and his recent explosion onto the Cuban music scene.
Following the discussion, Cimafunk and his band will treat the crowd to a lively jam session, after which guests can meet the Cuban musician in a reception.
