Gilberto, or "Gilbertónn," has performed as a drummer/timbaleros with nearly every major group in Cuba, in virtually every musical genre: from straight ahead jazz to traditional Cuban styles; from funk to rock, to Latin fusion. He is best known internationally for the "funk-in-clave" style of Afro-Cuban 'Salsa' known as Timba. He has been a featured member of many of Cuba's most popular groups, including Atempo, Medico de la Salsa, Bamboleo, The Power Generation, Charanga Habanera, and Charanga Forever. Gilbertónn is now living in Vancouver, quickly making a name for himself locally. One of the groups he plays with regularly is the great Cuban band D'Talle, as well as La Candela, Zapato Negro, Edgar Muenala, Alpha Yaya Diallo, Henry Brown.


Turiya Mareya's music is based on World Music influences and draws on the trance inducing and spirit calling focus of African and Indigenous music. She has shared the stage with such artists such as Arturo Sandoval, David Murray, Eddie Palmieri, Poncho Sanchez and Jane Bunnet. Since 2003 she has been touring and performing internationally. She has performed at Venues and Festivals in Madrid, Havana, Toronto, Vancouver, Juneau, Anchorage, Mexico City, Jalapa, Tijuana and San Diego.


For Latin Jazz aficionados, Turiya Mareya is the real deal. "The music is intoxicating and leaves you wanting more. Beautiful" and "unique compositions, improvisational mastery and passionate musicians. A delight." Amanda Martinez Host of Café con Leche, JAZZFM91.

"Turiya Mareya has been one of the driving forces behind creative music in San Diego. She has proven to be a dedicated composer and instrumentalist who has created a unique voice for herself. "Rob Thorsen, Bassist

"If you want intensity, Turiya can turn it up. If you want a solid groove, she is on the money. If you want background music, Turiya will hit you in the head and change the way you listen." Miff Mole, Jazz 88
