Sault Ste Marie

SAULT STE MARIE, ONTAIRO  ~~~~~  June 27, 2022 (LSNews)  – Grammy and Juno award winning musician Alex Cuba will perform at the Bondar Pavilion on August 10, 2022 at 8 p.m. 

Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy and Juno winner, singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition and possesses a vast musical vision. His eighth studio album, Mendó, won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop in 2022. The album, recorded at home, added recording engineer to his credits as musician, singer-songwriter, and producer. From the healing voice of Grammy Award winning Lila Downs on “Mundo Nuevo”, to his colourful collaboration with world-renowned flamenco artist, Antonio Carmona, and commissioning a 13-piece horn band from his native country of Cuba, the album is filled with international collaborations. 

Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba, was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father’s (respected guitarist and teacher Valentin Puentes) group of 24 guitarists. He now resides in Smithers, B.C. with his family and continues to make exceptional music that appeals to audiences worldwide.
