Alex Cuba – Sarah:
To say that Alex Cuba has had a busy 2016 would be a gross understatement. Following his 2015 win of the Best Singer-Songwriter Album at the Latin Grammy Awards, his new album, Healer, has been nominated by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for Best Latin Pop Album at the 2016 Grammys! On top of that, he’s slated to perform on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Canada Day 2016, taking place on July 1st.
This Juno-winning artist is also hosting the inspiring new documentary Cuban Bus, which showcases Alex traversing the Cuban nation in a mobile recording studio, finding the best homegrown talent that island has to offer. It’s a unique and uplifting piece that shows his keen awareness for not just enticing an audience, but also his own benevolence.
The brand new video for “Sarah” (already over half a million plays on Spotify) is another showcase of the impeccable visuals of Alex Cuba. With “Are You” he used a hybrid combination of live action and miniature stop motion animation to create a steampunk-inspired clip. For the gorgeous and serene “No Esperes Más,” he enlisted directors Facundo Gastiazoro and Taylor Fox to paint a beautiful, animated underwater world of vibrant colors and mixed mediums.
