Born in Havana, Sheila del Bosque Fuentes is one of the most in-demand young flutists in Cuba. Her performances feature contemporary and traditional Afro-Cuban music with the influence of European music and jazz. Throughout her career, del Bosque has been performing with orchestras such as the Orchestra of Lyceum Mozartiano from Havana,  the National Orchestra of Cuba, and the Cuban European Youth Orchestra. She has played recorder, flute, and traverse baroque flute for many festivals of ancient music throughout Cuba as well as in South Korea, Mexico, Germany, and the U.S. She has performed for such well-known figures as Pope Francis, Usher, Bon Jovi, and the Rolling Stones.

In 2014 she won first prize in the chamber music competition Musicalia. Awarded a full-tuition scholarship to Berklee, del Bosque enrolled in January 2018 to study performance and film scoring. At Berklee she has shared the stage with musicians such as Paquito d’Rivera, Berta Rojas, Aida Cuevas, and Omar Hakim. Her quartet represented Berklee when opening the 49th annual Next Generation Jazz Festival in Monterey and also recorded her original "Si mi isla fuese niño" for the Berklee YouTube channel.
