We have the honour to introduce you this exceptional musician, born in Villa Clara, Cuba, in October 5th, 1961, who, since his childhood, showed signs of unusual abilities for music and dance.

José Luis Cortés was formed in Havana Art Schools and Institutes, where he developed his talent, thus becoming one of those absolutely necessary for Cuban music.

As a flutist he joined important national groups which left their imprints in the national musical score, such as the Van Van and Irakere, until 1988, when he settled, together with other talented musicians the all-stars orchestra  NUEVA GENERACIÓN  (NG ) LA BANDA  / NEW GENERATION (NG) THE BAND  /.

Parallel to his work as flutist, he worked away as composer orchestrated, musical director of shows, and arranger and musical producer of phonograms, labour which allow him to enjoy a well-deserved prestige. In his credit he has more than 38 awarded record productions, all favoured by the specialized critics.

With NG LA BANDA, José Luis Cortés ("El Tosco" / "The Rough") has created by himself a new and vigorous sound in contemporary Cuban music, and the way he focuses his song’s texts has reflected the feeling of wide popular sectors, thus becoming an expert chronicler of our present-day image  

His arrangements for brass section have impressed the whole world, being these identified as "THE METALS OF TERROR". The way he works out tumbaos, and their interrelation with rhythmic section and keyboards has allowed him to create his own personal seal, easily distinguishable, becoming the creator of the CUBAN TIMBA.

The labour developed by José Luis Cortés and NG LA BANDA was not restricted to make people dance all over the world, but there is also a very professional work on instrumental music and Jazz where they get ovations by audiences and the most favourable criticisms by specialized press, because of the virtuosity displayed by each one of the musicians on their instruments as well as orchestrations and genial arrangements by Maestro José Luis Cortés. All this work brings about that NG LA BANDA are considered as one of the all-time most important musical groups.
