Music and comedy from the festival favourites
The Cuban Brothers’ unrivalled funk soul review blends soulful music with b-boy action and riotous comedy. From humble beginnings, Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani, Kengo Sanand Domenico have built Los Hermanos Cubanos – The Cuban Brothers – into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe. Mike Keat (Miguel) started The Cuban Brothers after ‘watching dance music disappear’ in the mid to late 90s. His love of b-boying, Latin music and character comedy inspired him to create an irreverent music-driven show to help him showcase his burgeoning talents as a singer, MC and dancer. After enrolling Archie ‘Archerio’ Easton (a former champion b-boy and ex-Prodigy dancer), Kengo ‘Kengo San’ Oshima (a dance student and earnest wrong-man) and most recently Domenico, the four-piece has blurred historic fact and hilarious fiction with the three elements of entertainment –music, comedy and dancing –journeying on an endless foray into fun and funky action.
Not only the entertainment of choice for Elton John, Richard Branson and Robbie Williams, the band has also supported James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Talib Kweli,and performed with the likes of The Prodigy, Q-Tip, Chic, Roy Ayers and Jocelyn Brown, as well as touring the world in their own right. Their residency at Rob da Bank’s celebrated Sunday Best parties led to the band hosting the main stage at Bestival, with their delirious rhythms, lightning wit, and gentle ribbing of world famous artists, plus a lot of inappropriate touching, endearing them to a constant stream of new fans. Taking the contagious dynamic of their live show into the studio the band’s debut album ‘Yo Bonita!’ features guest vocals from Mica Paris, Omar Kurtis Blow, Jungle Brother Mike Gee, Yolanda Quartey (Massive Attack) and KT Tunstall.
