The iconic funk rhythm band Earth, Wind & Fire will perform for the first time in Cuba during the third edition of the Havana World Music festival, organizers of the March 2016 event confirmed on Wednesday to EFE.

The U.S. band is scheduled to perform numbers from its most recent album “EW & Experience,” although additional details of their show remain to be specified.

Earth, Wind & Fire will head the list of bands at the third Havana World Music festival, which will also include the Mexican band Centavrvs, nominated for a Latin Grammy; Ellas, a trio of mariachis from Los Angeles; Spaniards Jorge Pardo and Lin Cortes, and Carolina Camacho from the Dominican Republic.

So far, the host country’s performers will include salsa band Havana D’ Primera, singer-songwriter Kelvis Ochoa, the Yoruba Andabo folk group and jazz newcomers Yissy & Bandancha, among others.

Havana World Music was launched in 2014 by Eme Alfonso as a result of his experience in a project to investigate the island’s ethnic-cultural origins.

According to the artist, the aim of the festival is to suggest to the young Cuban public “new sounds coming from different cultural areas,” which make the event a forum for disseminating alternative musical styles outside normal commercial routes.

Yoruba Andabo wishes to apologize to all its friends and public in the United States for postponing the tour scheduled for this November, for reasons beyond the control of the company, the involved institutions, and the organizers and promoters; The Yoruba Cuba Association, The Adinkra Group, and The Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation.

A delay in the processing of our visas prevented us from bringing the best of our art to you. We regret any inconvenience caused.

All of the involved parties are working very hard to schedule the presentations and workshops for January 2016 and to fulfill our commitment established with the people of the United States.

We are very grateful for your understanding and never ending support, and we await you without fail in January.

Respectfully yours
