He has won two Juno Awards for World Music Album of the Year: in 2006, for Humo de Tabaco, and in 2008 for his second album, Agua del Pozo. In 2010, he won the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist. His 2015 album, Healer, earned him a Latin Grammy Award for Best Singer-Songwriter Album and a Grammy Award nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. Cuba’s upcoming seventh studio features six duets with Latin singers and songwriters, including emerging star Silvana Estrada and Cuban legend Omara Portuondo. Engineered by John ‘Beetle” Bailey and recorded in Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain. Cuba is at the helm of every instrument and has adopted a more minimalistic feel to the overall creative process of music-making. His full-length album will be released in September of 2019. Until then, listeners can enjoy “Dividido” featuring Silvana Estrada, a young, talented singer from Mexico.

Cuba and Estrada are infectious; their duet is well-balanced and offers a message of hope and unity.
