Tomi y su Timbalight initially focused on Son, the backbone of Cuban Salsa and the traditional sound in which Cuban music has its roots. This gave the band its fundamental and a common understanding of their musical direction. Soon they started adding the Timba feel to their music and the group is now one of Europe’s Best Timba Bands.
