Clave & Blues is a young Cuban music and Latin jazz band that has performed at several concert halls and festivals in the Boston area since 2016, including John E. Lawrence Summer Jazz Series, Boston Pops, and many others. The mix between Afro-Cuban rhythms, blues, R&B, and world music creates a contemporary sound that gives this band its place in the New England music scene. It includes professional international musicians under the direction of Cuban pianist and Berklee alumnus Anibal Cruz. Their first single, "La Raza" (2020), shares a call for peace, diversity, celebration, and inclusion—a tribute to traditional Cuban music and its culture, featuring Clave & Blues and many artists worldwide.

"Our goal is to create music that engages people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. We aim to grow an audience that loves Cuban music and its culture," says Clave & Blues. 

"Get ready to be transported to the vibrant world of Latin American music and dance in our upcoming concert! We've assembled a truly dynamic cast of local and international artists who will take you on a journey through the rich rhythms, lively beats, and energetic movements from Cuba and Puerto Rico. We will have special surprises—moments of improvisation, interactive dance elements, and legendary guest artists who will leave you breathless with their talent and passion. From rumba to plena, from salsa to timba, get ready to clap, dance, and join a community of fun and joyful people."
