The Cuban Brothers Release New Album 'Yo Bonita' May 6th 2013

Los Hermanos Cubanos, aka The Cuban Brothers, are all set to release their new album 'Yo Bonita' May 6th via Jam City Records. The album features the band's hottest joints; from funk and soul right through to hip-hop and jazz, and special guest appearances from Mica Paris, Kurtis Blow, Tenor Fly, Abdominal, Omar and KT Tunstall.

From humble beginnings Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani and Kengo San have built Los Hermanos Cubanos - The Cuban Brothers - into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe. Not only the entertainment of choice for Elton John, Richard Branson and Robbie Williams, the trio has also supported James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Talib Kweli and performed with the likes of The Prodigy, Q-Tip, Chic, Roy Ayers and Jocelyn Brown.

A raw collection of sinewy funk and heavy beats, unusually for a dance album, Yo Bonita eschews building tracks around samples in favour of a real band dynamic, which lends the collection of original tracks and inspired covers a groove that is undeniably infectious. Giving even more depth to proceedings is a litany of unique vocalists, that include Mica Paris, KT Tunstall, Kurtis Blow, Tenor Fly and the legendary Omar. From crate diggers' delight Misdemenor originally by Foster Sylvers, Sly and the Family Stone's Underdog and Motorhead's Ace of Spades rendered as you've never heard it before to the band's originals, including The Finding and Mike 4 President, the band effortlessly prove they know their chops, laying a contagious bedrock for Mike's vocals to soar.

Miguel Mantovani said - "Yo Bonita! was the album started just after my first born Bonbon, I wanted to do an organic project not using any samples with the extraordinary live band I'd put together to support James Brown on one of his last tours out in Australia. The players comprise cats from Amy Winehouse's outfit, Primal scream and so many more and they are the dopest musicians. The main idea was to do some great songs, dope beats and keep it free of gimmicks.

"With the exception of Kurtis Blow, who is just a legend of hip-hop culture and somebody I've always admired, the guests are some of my favourite British artists, all with their own true voice."

The band will be heading out on tour to support the new album, including a headline show at The Garage in London, and what promises to be a barnstorming slot at this year's Bestival.
