Alex Cuba Live In NPR's Studio 4A

Google Rank
Alexis Puentes has been in the family business since he was 4. That's when he joined his dad and a group of 24 guitarists in a performance aired on Cuban national TV. Now Puentes records as Alex Cuba. In his music, you can hear how he's blended his father's musical influence— and stories from the Cuban countryside — with a touch of '70s soul.

Cuba's new album is called Agua del Pozo, which translates as "well water."

In a recent visit to NPR's Studio 4A to speak with Liane Hansen, Alex Cuba also performs some of his new songs, starting with "Vampiro," which he says is his favorite song on the album.
