Born in Cuba, Alex fell in love with a Canadian beauty & immigrated to Canada. Alex packed into his belonging’s his many songs and sharp knowledge of the history of Cuban music.
Mendo is his 9th album.
With those 9 albums, Alex has won 2 Juno awards and is up for another this month. He’s also won four Latin Grammy Awards and at the recent 2022 event, he won his first Grammy Award.
Alex is a completely self-contained artist. Put an instrument in front of him and very likely he can play it.
During the Covid pandemic, he decided to collaborate with other players, singers and songwriters. The songs came alive and Mendo became yet another turning point in his career.
Alex has been on Mulligan Stew before. On the Juno couch in Calgary with Jim and Devin Cuddy and again on Zoom.
So happy to welcome back a Spanish-speaking, English riffing star on the rise.
Alex Cuba brings Mendo. (The essence of the soul)
