$40 adults | $35 students and seniors | $20 groups of 10+ | $5 off for Miami Beach residents


Alex Cuba is a multiple Latin Grammy/Grammy/Juno-winning singer-songwriter with a vast musical vision that draws but is not tied to tradition. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks, and powerful guitar riffs relinquish stereotypes of much of the Latin music landscape. His musical evolution for years was all about searching for the simplicity and soul in Cuban music and mixing it with North American influences, adopting the melodic simplicity of pop music, and looking to Cuban folk traditions for inspiration. He’s always exploring, always creating something fresh and new, and always, it seems, getting it just right.
