'Terapia' is my first solo album. It is an original fusion of funk, Cuban music and African rhythms, a musical "mestizaje" (miscegenation) whose lyrics come directly from the Cuban streets. This tropicalized funk is designed to get you dancing!

*** MORE INFO *** This new project is enriched by numerous collaboration with renowned Cuban musicians such as Roberto Carcassés (Piano), Ernesto Ermidas (Bass), Héctor Quintana (Guitar), Adel Gonzales (Percussions), Brenda Navarrete (Percussions and Voice), among others. Cimfunk's inspiration for this album grows from an eclectic panel of black music: from James Brown’s, George Clinton’s and Prince’s Funk and the soul music of Al Green and Bill Withers to Cuban “Trova” of Beny Moré and Bola de Nieve and Juan Formell’s y Los Van Van’s “songo”.
Erik Alejando Iglesias Rodriguez (a.k.a. Cimafunk), is a Cuban singer, composer and music producer born in 1989 in Pinar del Rio. From 2010 to 2015 he worked as a chorister of relevant artists of Cuban’s alternative music, such as Raúl Paz, David Torrens or Liuba María Hevia. In 2014, he joined Interactivo as singer and composer. The band directed by the famous pianist and composer Roberto Carcassés, makes a highly explosive fusion of jazz, timba and funk. The majority of its members are composers and producers as well as renowned musicians who are conducting their own musical projects in various representative trends of Cuban music: Nueva Trova, Son, Cuban Jazz, Hip hop. In 2016, Erik started his own “solo” career under the artistic name of Cimafunk. This name refers to its heritage as a Cimarrón, Africans who resisted and escaped slavery, as well as to the essence of its music that aims - by playing with rhythms - at escaping well knowns paths.
