Alexander Abreu y Havana D’ Primera
This is a hot act! Dance to one of the best horn sections in Cuba, led by the indominable Alexander Abreu. In 2000, timba.com named Alexander Abreu 'best Timba trumpet player' and since then his special dance music has sizzled all over the world. His Habana D' Primera band entertains in Cuba and abroad with a specially developed Timba style, incorporating Calypso, Salsa and Jazz. Abreu says the style is Timba, adding that Cubans have Timba 'coming out of our pores'.
Abreu has played with many great musicians including Paulo FG, Isaac Delgado and Mayito Rivera, plus the famous Juan Formell and Los Van Van, among others. A Latin Grammy award winner, the popular showmaster, is at the top of his game.
As well as appearances as a film actor, Abreu has played in clubs in San Francisco and New York and worldwide on his 'passport tour' to Europe and South America.
Influenced by Chucho Valdés and Adalberto Álvarez, Habana D’ Primera is now one of the top Cuban acts, sought by clubs around the world.
A popular favourite in Cuba, the band can still be seen up close in Havana as they give exciting, steaming hot performances in the air-conditioned Casa de la Música in Miramar.
