Alex Cuba New Album “Ruido En El Sistema”
I’ve been following Alex Cuba since I was in college and he randomly performed a show in Memphis, TN. He is one of my favorite Cuban-born, Canada-based, Latin soul musicians out there. Just kidding…he’s the only one out there, but he’s still amazing! This week, Cuba debuted a new album, “Ruido En El Sistema” which was actually release through his own label, Caracol Records.
There are pretty high expectations for this new album, following the success of his previous self-titled album, which won a Latin Grammy for Best New Artist and received a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. For “Ruido En El Sistema,” Cuba joined forces with Joby Baker who produced Cuba’s previous two albums. Being the multicultural team they they are, some of the album was recorded in Canada while the rest was recorded in Cuba. Que cool!
Also, be sure to check out the other fantastic Canadian who joins Cuba this new album on “Nadie Como Tu”, Nelly Furtado!
