Bringing the funk to Cuban rhythms (and vice versa), Cimafunk embraces the piquant playfulness of timeless Cuban music with 21st-century style, referencing timba as well as trova, and continuing where '90s cult band Yerba Buena left off. Cimafunk, who was by all accounts Cuba’s 2018 revelation of the year, is poised for international discovery.

Cimafunk visits Google New York to perform music from his latest album, "Terapia," and engages with Brett Perlmutter, Head of Google Cuba, to discuss the emerging creative class in Cuba and the role of expanded internet access.

Moderated by Brett Perlmutter, Head of Google Cuba.
