Alex Cuba - Alex CubaThe ’Fro is on the go. Known for his striking Afro hairdo, Alex is one of Canada’s fast-rising stars. The Cuban-born musician has collaborated with the likes of Ron Sexsmith, Blue Rodeo and, most recently, Nelly Furtado, while developing his own appealing musical fusion. Alex’s third album is a spirited mix of styles, from the sunny reggae of the opening “Directo” to the freewheeling funk-rock of “Caballo.” And Alex proves he’s ready for his close-up with his first English song, the joyous “If You Give Me Love.”
