Bravo Niagara! presents Alex Cuba Saturday, March 25 at 7 p.m. at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in Downtown St. Catharines.
Cuban-Canadian singer-songwriter Alex Cuba takes the stage for an intimate solo performance featuring music from his latest album Mendó, winner of the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album.
His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs relinquish conventional stereotypes that exemplify much of the Latin music landscape. Always creating something fresh and new, Cuba’s musical evolution for years has been all about searching for the simplicity and soul in Cuban music – taking apart the complex arrangements mixing it with North American influences, adopting the melodic simplicity of pop music, looking to Cuban folk traditions for inspiration – he’s always exploring, always creating something fresh and new, and always, it seems, getting it just right.
