Roberto Poveda

Roberto Poveda, is without a doubt a performer with the unique ability of reaching deep down into his Cuban roots, and deliver Soulful, Eclectic, and Hypnotizing songs which he both writes and performs with the passion of a true artist. His unique approach in combining the various Cuban music forms of Son, Bolero, Rumba, & Timba, with Jazz, R & B, and Rap has resulted in a sound all his own. Following in the steps of his grandfather, a Cuban Troubadour in the traditional vein, Poveda joined Havana’s Nueva Trova movement, maturing musically among a new generation of Cuban singer/songwriters.
