Vancouver, BC - The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) presents three-time Grammy nominated Cuban music group Tiempo Libre. The high-voltage Latin septet will bring audiences to their feet on Friday, March 9 at 8pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.

“The music of Cuba is undeniable. It simply sets your body in motion,” said Joyce Hinton, Co-Managing Director of the Chan Centre. “Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs and dance venues, Tiempo Libre are not only ambassadors of this rich musical heritage, but dynamic innovators who bring fresh interpretation and innovation to the traditional Cuban sound.”

As seen on The Tonight Show and Dancing with the Stars, the seven scintillating men of Tiempo Libre have earned international acclaim for their joyful performances of timba – a sophisticated, dance-inducing mix of Latin jazz and the rhythms of Cuban son. From the Hollywood Bowl to Jazz at Lincoln Center, audiences continually jump to their feet compelled to dance to the group’s infectious sound.

Classically trained in Havana’s prestigious music conservatories, Tiempo Libre’s members are true modern heirs to the rich tradition of the music of their native Cuba. Since 2001, the Miami, Florida-based musicians have been on a mission: to share the musical heritage in which they grew up with as wide an audience as possible, reinterpreting and reinvigorating traditional Cuban music with a youthful, modern sound, while forging a new style born from the meeting of their Cuban roots and their new American experience.

Tiempo Libre recently released its new timba album, My Secret Radio, and its previous albums Bach in Havana, Lo Que Esperabas and Arroz Con Mango have all been nominated for Grammy Awards.

“Nothing short of high voltage…Tiempo Libre is a hot, hot act.” – Blaze, Australia
