About Jose Lorenzo & Timbason la Original
Timbason takes its name from Son, the most influential form of Latin music in the late 1800s, and Timba, a Cuban version of America’s soul and funk. The newest and most provocative music out of Cuba, Timba is like salsa on steroids. It incorporates Brazilian music, R&B, hip-hop, Latin jazz, and Cuban salsa. Son, on the other hand, is a style of dance music that originated in the Oriente province of Cuba. It is the foundation of modern salsa. Timbason combines all of this in a unique hybrid of modern Cuban music that is more up-to-date and more in tune with the real music that Cubans listen to today.

We are offering a number of Corporate Sponsorship levels, as well as Gala ticket packages and concert-only tickets. Contact or visit for more information.
