About this Event

The seventh studio album for Alex, features six duets with Latin singers and songwriters, including emerging star Silvana Estrada and Cuban legend Omara Portuondo. Engineered by John ‘Beetle” Bailey and recorded in Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain – Alex is at the helm of every instrument, adopting a more minimalistic feel to the overall creative process, that enhances the magical simplicity of these songs.

The combination of new and established artists featured on the record illustrates the continuity of the Latin-American song, of genres like trova, bolero, son, guajira (among others), and the influence that jazz and pop have had on these genres forever.

His naturally retro songwriting shines on the album with the acoustic guitar, upright bass and percussion. After six albums that illustrate a development through jazz/pop/rock, Alex has set out to capture the mood and vibe of the original demos when the songs are recorded for the first time; that precise moment of total honesty between the composer and his craft.

In an era of division and difference, Alex Cuba and Silvana Estrada write "Dividido" (out March 22), a song that highlights the differences that still separate us in the world, using as a metaphor a loving relationship that decides to embrace and celebrate diversity.

The new single “Yo No Sé” talks about the importance of giving yourself the benefit of the doubt and allowing yourself to try anything.
