ALBITA – Friday, February 6, 2009, 8:00 p.m.
Known as the Cuban diva, Albita graces audiences with her Cuban renditions of dance and soul! The Miami-based ten time Grammy Award nominee and two time Grammy Award winner kicks off the 2nd Annual Global Fest with a smokin dance party under the stars!

ALEX CUBA – Saturday, February 7, 2009, 8:00 p.m.
Singer-songwriter Alex*Cuba’s trademark sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords subtly subvert commonly held notions of what Cuban music is. Alex is the vanguard, crafting a cross-cultural sound. Not tied to tradition, this Cuban-Canadian prefers his vintage Gibson over el sencerro (cowbell) anytime.

YOSVANY TERRY “YE-DÉ-GBÉ AFRO-CARIBBEAN LEGACY” – Sunday, February 8, 2009, 8:00 p.m.
Yosvany Terry’s voice and style are unique and complex, marrying Cuban and American musical traditions to create a new and exciting sound. The New York–based Terry brings Afro Cuban folklore alive with his saxophone. Join us for the closing night of Global Cuba Fest for music and dancing under the full moon!
