nueva luz ha llegado
con nuevo sabor
nueva luz ha llegado
repartiendo amor

es la formula perfecta
la felicidad
y con fuerza gritar�s:

acelera, Paco, acelera
que la banda empieza a tocar
acelera, Paco, acelera
Echa pa'ca

(Eduardo Alfonso Herrera)

a new light has come
with a new taste
a new light has come
spreading love

it's the perfect formula
it's pure happiness
and with all your might you'll shout:

speed it up, my friend, speed it up
let the band play
speed it up, my friend, speed it up
Echa pa'ca!

(Eduardo Alfonso Herrera)

In Havana, Cuba, Eduardo Alfonso Herrera has worked with Charanga Latina, Grupo Jelengue and many more. Today he lives in the Netherlands, and in the years since, he has performed with well-known artists such as Molote Mu�oz, Fabian, and Grupo Az�l.

Tobias Dammers made his first encounters with Cuban music at the Arnhem conservatory, and after graduating in 2003, he continued studying this rich musical tradition. He has worked with, among others, Gerardo Rosales and Alberto Caicedo, and he is a regular member of Grupo Az�l.

Together, they created Nueva Luz to realize their dream - a band of their own, based on traditional Cuban roots, combined with salsa from New York and Puerto Rico as well as newer influences like songo, timba and reggaeton, and spiced up with their very own distinctive vision - a small line-up, a trombone-only horn section, but most of all, the unique rootsy voice of sonero Eduardo, and fresh arrangements, each and every one tailored to this group. Nueva Luz plays mainly original repertoire, plus a few Cuban classics and salsa standards, re-arranged by Tobias Dammers.
