      “Every musician is an all-star.” –
      Havana D'Primera, like its name implies, represents the cream of the musical crop from Havana. Formed only five years ago by virtuoso trumpeter/vocalist Alexander Abreu, they have become the foremost purveyor of “timba,” Afro-Cuban folkloric dance rhythms mixed with Cuban pop music and American jazz/funk influences. High-energy grooves and complex horn lines, at times breaking with the long held practice of playing “en clave,” are timba's calling card. Havana D’Primera's debut album, Hacienda Historia, revitalized timba music for a new generation of fans. Their latest release, Pasaporte, has created more excitement than any other Cuban music release in years.
