A group of talented Cuban men with a career in music get together with an ambitious project: to provide top quality music to the Latin-music dancers of th e area and to make the top lists at local, and not so local radio stations. All of them with degrees from conservatories from Havana, Cuba, these men started playing in different orchestras with an impressive creative and technical quality. Back in Cuba these men were among the very few to record with Fania All Stars as LM Sobredosis, or Latin Music Sobredosis. They left the island in 1999 together and moved down to Mexico. They acquired a great deal of experience during their successful journey through Mexico and finally arrived at the US. Once in the US jazz came to interest these musicians, so they also formed a latin jazz quintet: The Havana Quintet. Their musical activities are not limited to gigs, but they are also music instructors, writers and arrangers. So, when in the mood for salsa, bachata, merengue and chachacha Team Havana is the choice.
