About X Alfonso

With a career spanning nearly three decades, X Alfonso, the avant-garde creator inspired by rock, hip hop, electronic music, and Afro-Cuban harmonies, is considered one of the leading exponents of musical artistry in Cuba today. He has collaborated with outstanding artists and groups such as Audioslave, Bebe, Santiago Feliú, Descemer Bueno, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Rick Wakeman.

X Alfonso was awarded the Premio Goya for the soundtrack for the film Habana Blues (2005). And because of his unmistakable talent, he has been lauded internationally and has also been nominated several times for a Latin Grammy award. In 2006, he was honored in the category Best New Latin Artist during the Premios de la Música de España.

Because of his artistic endeavors and because of his involvement with children in Havana at the Fábrica de Arte Cubano (FAC), he was named a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF in 2011. The Fábrica de Arte Cubano, included in Time magazine's 2019 list of the world's 100 greatest places, is a cultural center in Havana for young, emerging artists as well as for those who have enjoyed a long, established career as musicians, filmmakers, painters, and dancers.

In September 2019, X released a new album, INSIDE, where he has included artistic work from different and various fields, making this not just a record but a social and artistic project. Without a doubt, this album heralds the return of a preeminent musician from the contemporary Latin music world.
