The Soul Rebels Releases Video for 'Greatness' & Heads Out on Tour
Brass sensation THE SOUL REBELS, kick off their Poetry In Motion Tour in support of the new genre-bending album. In support of the tour launch, the eight-piece collective are turning heads with a new lyric video for the single "Greatness", tapped by ESPN as the official soundtrack of the 2019-20 college basketball season.
The Soul Rebels are riding high having just returned from a historic week in Havana, Cuba alongside Tank and The Bangas, Trombone Shorty and Cuban superstar, Cimafunk. The New York Times explained further that: "Music has long formed a cultural bridge between Cuba and the United States regardless of the state of political relations, with Afro-Cuban rhythms like the habanera feeding into Afro-American music as early as the 19th century."
Marcus Hubbard of The Soul Rebels also spoke with Reuters saying:
"We are hoping that with us coming over, this can open up the door to more collaborations and things the U.S. and Cuba can come together on"
