On Sunday, April 1st, some of the most exciting musicians of the contemporary Cuban music scene will be sharing their unique sound in the opened-air North Beach BandShell on Miami Beach: Roberto Carcassés , William Vivanco, Melvis Santa, Francis del Río y Telmary, are only some of the outstanding names headlining in Interactivo, the most provocative timba-funk band out there. This concert is presented by FUNDarte and Miami Light Project in collaboration with Mega TV as part of the fifth edition of Miami’s Global Cuba Fest.

Interactivo will heat up the BandShell at 7 PM with their Miami premiere. Although this is their very first time in the U.S, Interactivo is an internationally acclaimed Cuban fusion ensemble whose sizzling performances and recordings have already taken Europe and the Americas by storm. The Group was founded in 2001 under the direction of renowned Cuban pianist Roberto Carcassés, and within a few short years, it turned into the most interesting musical expression of contemporary Cuban musical fusion, mixing traditional Cuban rhythms like danzón, bolero and son, infused with generous helpings of jazz, rock and pop.

At 3 PM, parents and children will enjoy a different family engagement with “One Upon a Time in the Carribean”, by the twice Latin Grammy-nominated Rita Rosa. In this musical tale, which is in the tropical islands of the Caribbean, Rita Rosa, the humming bird and the coqui frog are singing along when they notice a happy street vendor asking Maria Moñitos to marry him. At the end of the day, all of them invite the public to dance in a great and colorful “Fiesta” surrounded by coconuts, bananas and kites. The event is free and open to the public.

*Global Cuba Fest is FUNDarte’s signature series (co-presented yearly with Miami Light Project) dedicated to presenting the finest in contemporary performing arts from Cuba and the Cuban Diaspora.
