Tatiana Garmendia is an inter-disciplinary artist with a figurative twist. Her work synthesizes formal concerns and a humanist engagement with history and culture. “History is not a subject I just picked up from a dusty schoolbook, but things I’ve actually lived. I remember playing in abandoned missile trenches as a child,” says the artist, who was born in Cuba during the height of the Cold War. Repatriation from the Spanish government took the artist’s family first to Madrid, and later to the U.S.A.

Trio Cubay bases its repertoire essentially on sones, guarachas and boleros, with a hint of rumba, cha-cha-cha, changüí and latin jazz. As a result of the versatility of its members, the trio incorporates other Cuban and Caribbean genres into their music.
Cubay is a musical project founded on May 2015 in Seattle, Washington by Alfredo Polier (voice and minor percussion) and Javier Maru (voice and guitar), initially as a duo. Later on, Cubay teamed up with Lalo Bello (percussion), which resulted in extending the project to a trio. Cubay also has the ability of appearing as a quartet or quintet as well.
In a very particular way, Cubay recreates its music, mainly based on analogies of popular Cuban melodies representing the roots of the native flavor originated from the largest island of the Antilles. Furthermore, the singular form of vocal harmonization (always in pair of voices) forms a "contrapunteo" game that easily navigates from traditional harmonies to modern or vice versa.
Cubay's proposal is able to please the most demanding tastes. It delights both those who like to dance and those who prefer to listen and enjoy well-crafted music.
El Trio Cubay basa su repertorio fundamentalmente en sones, guarachas y boleros, con destellos de rumba, changüí, cha-cha-cha y jazz latino. Aunque gracias a la versatilidad de sus integrantes es capaz de interpretar otros géneros musicales cubanos y caribeños.
Cubay es un proyecto musical fundado en mayo del 2015 en Seattle, Washington por Alfredo Polier (voz y percusión menor) y Javier Maru (voz y guitarra), inicialmente con formato de dúo.
Por un corto periodo de tiempo contó con la colaboración de Alexander Samón, bajista y exelente músico/arreglista que ayudo con los arreglos del repertorio.
Tiempo después Cubay unió fuerzas con Lalo Bello (percusión) extendiéndose a trio. Y hoy cuenta con la posibilidad de presentarse como cuarteto o quinteto gracias a la riqueza de su repertorio.
De una manera muy particular Cubay fundamenta y recrea sus arreglos musicales, principalmente basados en analogías de temas de la música cubana, sobre la base del sabor y lo más autóctono de la mayor de las Antillas. Al mismo tiempo, la forma singular de armonización vocal (siempre a dúo de voces) va formando un juego de contrapunteo que puede fácilmente transitar de la armonía tradicional a la moderna o viceversa.
La propuesta de Cubay aun en su formato más reducido es capaz de complacer a los más exigentes gustos. Cubay complace tanto a los que gustan de bailar como a aquellos que prefieren escuchar música bien elaborada.

Music is the universal language. We all respond to music with emotion and movement. And it is precisely because music elicits such a strong response that it is the perfect medium for bringing greater cultural and historical awareness to young audiences.
