Alexander Abreu founded the Cuban timba band, Havana D' Primera
, in 2008. Not only is he the composer, arranger and vocalist in the group, he is also widely recognized as one of the greatest trumpet players of his generation!
Havana d’Primera is all about the excitement and soulfulness of a musical heritage that is being enjoyed by audiences around the globe. Since the band was formed, Havana d’Primera has revitalized “timba” for a new generation of fans. This high-energy incarnation of Afro-Cuban folkloric dance rhythms incorporates everything from Cuban pop to American bebop, funk, reggaeton, and R&B. Along with Alexander Abreu’s direction, Havana d’Primera’s sound has culminated into a fascinating fusion of music and rhythms.
After extensive touring through the US, South America, Europe and Asia, Havana d’Primera is poised to become the most popular Cuban group of our time!
