The music


You have the right to ignore any Latin pop or Reggaeton singing or rapping only of nalgas, sappy love or material wealth.
Good music is your right. Exercise your rights.

Liberace Afternoon

TCC specializes in marrying Son, Montuno, and other Afro-Cuban musical forms with distortion-heavy indie rock gilded in pop miscellany— a capricious mixture of tradition and revolt served up under swooning surf guitar and dark post-punk power chords. Armed with intelligent lyrics and catchy Mambo riffs, The Cuban Cowboys embrace their audiences en un-rock 'n' roll abrazo: suave, firme y muy —¿Como se dice? — caliente.


Since 2007, with the release of their debut album (Cuban Candles), the band has steadily built a following across the United States and Europe, playing in venues as diverse as the Kennedy Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Yoshi's (SF) and The Tiniest Bar in Texas (Austin), and festivals such as South by Southwest. Their last full album, Diablo Mambo, was produced by Greg Landau (Maldita Vecindad, Susana Baca), and includes vocal performances by Alex Cuba. Featured on NPR's Weekend Edition, Diablo Mambo brings listeners directly to the groove-drenched corner of Brooklyn and Matanzas.

The pandemic allowed founder-frontman Jorge time to write new music and begin chronicling his experiences via memoir writing, blogging, and podcasting (with his 90-year old Cuban mom, no less). The past few years have been muy loco, but 2024 already promises to be quite a year ... for you, the band, and your favorite Cuban Cowboy hisself! So here's to the first two singles from a new album slated for release in October 2024, a new, LIVE album coming this summer, as well as another book. And here's to you (for visiting, reading this far:))
