Biography - About us

The Hot Carnival Cubans are an incredible Cuban carnival street band for hire and have been celebrating the music and colour of the Santiago de Cuba Carnival since 1993.  The moment they start they instantly create a party atmosphere and they're a fun choice especially if you want something unique. They play all the rhythms and melodies of the traditional 'Paseo' (costumed street bands) with trumpets, saxophones, trombone and percussion. They have played and paraded for parties, weddings, festivals and carnivals all over the world from the Stoke Newington Festival to headlining the Rain Forest World Music Festival in Borneo and the fiestas of Santiago de Cuba. They are full of energy, humour and make any celebration fun!
