The band rules its region, earning high profile gigs and collaborations with top Cuban acts like Los Van Van and Yordys Larrazabal, lead singer of Maykel Blanco y su Salsa Mayor. Bearing new single “Llego Lo Que Tu Esperabas,” Timbeko ventures out to Austin’s most elegant jazz club, with Cuban motion to spare.
