EDKUB builds a bridge between Cuban and electronic music, it was founded in 2018 by Swiss composer-producer and bass player Fred Sumi. Since his first stay in Cuba in 1995, Fred Sumi has been passionate about Cuban music, especially about the musical style timba. EDKUB was born from his passion and sound aesthetics as a producer: Cuban grooves produced with warm and spherical electronic sounds.
EDKUB is the result of friendship and collaboration with great Cuban musicians during several recording sessions in Havana and Geneva: Duniesky Barreto (congas, others percussions), Maykel Garcia Gonzales (piano, keyboards), Eduardo Bringuez Ayarde (trumpet) all three are musicians of Pupy y Los que Son Son. Roicel Riveron (timbal) is the former drummer/timbal of Manolito y Su Trabuco and Nestor Lago (tres) is part of Elito Reve y Su Charangon, Marbis Manzanet with her deep and intense voice and the brothers Yassell Sotomayor and Raysel Sotomayor aka Los Niches with their voices imbued with African roots.
EDKUB’s first album will be released in 2021 and reaches out Cuban music lovers as well as an audience that appreciates electronic sounds as well as jazz improvisations.
