Instrumentist, composer, performer and visual artist, he has developed a multifaceted career that makes him one of the greatest artistic exponents of contemporary Cuba.
Since the 1990s he has developed a successful career in the rock and pop rock scene, where he travels through the ballad with elements of hip hop, electronic music and pop with Afro-Cuban roots. He has performed in different international stages and has been part of the posters of festivals such as Womex, SXSW, Roskilde and Havana World Music. His collaborations include works with artists such as Santiago Feliú, Descemer Bueno, Meshell Ndegeocello, Rick Wakeman, Bebe and Audioslave. His versatility has allowed him to successfully compose music for theater, contemporary dance and cinema, where he won a Goya Award for Best Original Music for the soundtrack of the film Habana Blues. Since 2010 he leads the Cuban Art Factory (FAC, in spanish) -considered by TIME magazine in 2019 as one of the one hundred best places in the world- an unprecedented cultural space with a transmedia vocation and where converge young emerging artists (musicians, filmmakers, painters, dancers) with others with a longer career. In 2010 he received the title of Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF for his artistic work with and for children.
