He’s toured the world. He's won two Junos and three Latin Grammys. The Calgary Folk Fest is thrilled to bring Cuban-born Alex Cuba to the Gateway on November 5. His groove-laden, multi-culti sound is full of smoky vocals and hot, magnetic hook-laden guitar playing. He creates a new Latin soul sound, built from Afro-Latin rhythms, Cuba’s bittersweet melodies and jazz. His latest album, Healer, includes bilingual duets with key Canadian and US artists.


The perfect soul and R&B vocals of Calgarian Lynn Olagundoye marries a sound that incorporates the best of funk, jazz, Afrobeat and vintage pop.
