Diaz, Jesus Y Su QBA, Jardinero

Jesus Diaz y Su QBA fuses modern and traditional elements of Afro-Cuban influences within dance music to create their unique sound. Showcased in this second project, Jesus has assembled an incomparable orchestra of accomplished artists whose talents combine Funk. Jazz, Rumba, Son, and varied Afro-Cuban elements within the syncopation of modern expressions in Cuban dance music. The richly complex offerings of "Jardinero" demonstrate that original "Timba" is indeed alive and well here in the United States. "Jesus Diaz continues to push the envelope. Since its inception in 1999. Diaz Y Su OBA developed a sophisticated, highly refined, style of salsa that combined elements of folklore, jazz, and urban hip-hop. Now, with this project, Mr. Diaz fully embraces the complexities of the timba style - it is interesting that this one originated here in the U.S." - Bruce Polin, Descarga.com
