Three-time Grammy-nominated Afro-Caribbean music group Tiempo Libre is one of the hottest Latin bands today.  Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs, festival stages, and dance
venues, Tiempo Libre is celebrated for its sophisticated tropical music featuring an
irresistible, exhilarating mix of jazz harmonies, contemporary sonorities and seductive
Latin rhythms.

Throughout the past 14 years, the band has appeared around the globe and has been
featured on television shows including The Tonight Show, Live from Lincoln Center,
and Dancing with the Stars as well as many entertainment programs on Univision
and Telemundo. Since the group’s formation in Miami 2001, its members have been
on a mission to share their Afro-Caribbean heritage with as wide an audience as possible, reinterpreting and reinvigorating music born from the meeting of their musical origins
with their new American experience.
