Drawing their inspiration from traditional Cuban music, seven young musicians formed Asere in the 1990s to create roots music with a contemporary feel while respectfully maintaining the style and passion of the music of their forefathers. Retaining acoustic instruments, they wrote new songs and inventive arrangements, developing a sound for a new generation, and delivered it with an explosive punch. Their fresh energy, endearing personality and powerful performances soon attracted attention in France and the UK. From there, Asere went on to perform all over the world, from Norway to Sri Lanka. After a successful debut tour of the U.S. in 2016 with the Havana Cuba All-Stars show, the band returns with special guests from the dance group Identidad.
