Primera Linea is a youth band from Havana, Cuba that fuses AfroCuban rhythms and New Orleans funk. Mentored by AfroCuban funk sensation Cimafunk and New Orleans superstar Trombone Shorty, Primera Linea has developed a dynamic live show and performed at many of Havana’s top venues, including the Fabrica de Arte Cubano (FAC), Tribe Caribe’s Black Box, La Guarida Rooftop, Guampara Music, Bar H and La Carpinteria. The name Primera Linea means “First Line,” as they were the “first” group of youth from their neighborhood to travel to New Orleans to experience and learn Second “Line” music and traditions, which is now a pillar of their music and identity. Antuan (bass), Camila (lead vocals), Daniela (trombone), Fabio (trumpet), Hollden (drums), Kevin (percussion) and Marlon (keys) are students at the Guillermo Tomas School of Music in Guanabacoa and range in ages from 12 to 18 years old. Primera Linea’s debut album will be released later this year.

The Trombone Shorty Academy features the next generation of brass band musicians from high schools all over New Orleans. Carrying the city's cultural heritage forward, the Academy has traveled to Los Angeles, New York, and Cuba, as well as sharing the Tipitina's stage with Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews every year at the foundation's fundraiser, Shorty Fest. Taught by members of the Soul Rebels, Rebirth Brass Band, and New Breed Brass Band, the Trombone Shory Academy bring a fresh perspective to a musical tradition that dates back over 100 years. The future is now with these young performers.


Live Shows will take place at the Canyons Village Amphitheater and venues on Main Street Park City. Individual tickets are available for you to enjoy unique lineups and collaborations that are not to be missed!
