The Cuban rap group Cubanitos 20-02, one of the most popular hip-hop bands on the Island, is preparing a European tour.

Accompanied by four musicians (guitar, keyboards, drums and bass guitar), the three members of the group will perform in Belgium, France, Holland, Italy and Portugal.

The group is made up of Javier Dur�n (Doctor Webb), Jose Angel Sastre (MC White) and Haniel Gonz�lez (DJ Flipper).

Gonz�lez said that they will promote their CD “Soy Cubanito” (I’m Cuban), which they expect to be as successful as in Cuba.

According to experts, the group performs fusion music, so their repertoire includes reggae, Son, guaracha and guaguanco, among other musical rhythms.

Cuban rap is highly-acclaimed on international stages, especially after the success of the group Orishas, which won a Grammy Award for their CD “Emigrantes” (Emigrants).

“Soy Cubanito” is my favorite CD! I got an early version of it last year when I was in Cuba. When I went back to Cuba this year, it was still extremely popular. It has now been released in the U.S.

Hi. I live in Germany and I got to know Cubanitos as I was in Cuba. Now I am trying to find CD`s from them since a long time. But no chance in Germany.

Can someone give me a tip where I can find a Homepage so that I can order some CD´s?

Thanks Shervin
