One of the hottest young Latin bands today, Miami-based Tiempo Libre is equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs and dance venues.

Now a worldwide sensation with three Grammy nominations, Tiempo Libre is celebrated for its incendiary, joyful performances of timba, an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of high-voltage Latin jazz, and the seductive rhythms of Cuban son.
