Kumar, Mc and musical producer, began his career in the hip hop at the end of the 90s and became popular after appearing in the movie Habana Blues. With a broken, rhythmic voice and a melodious Afro-Cuban accent, he invokes his ancestors in his songs. With the characteristics of a rapper, his music is cooked on a machine and flavored with ethnic, acoustic, analogical and digital instruments under the influences of afro jazz, reggae, funk, electronics and, especially, Cuban traditional and folkloric music.
The Havana underground has suffered the loss of artists and friends who accompanied us in life, who made us dance until dawn and are part of our history. This day is dedicate to them.
