    For Cubans, El Tipo Este is the pioneer of all things hip-hop. As founding member of Obsesion, one of the nation’s most notable hip hop exports. Early champions of his music included Gilles Peterson, who selected a track to include in his ‘Havana Cultura; New Cuba Sounds’ compilation. Hot off the heels of this, El Tipo Este was enlisted to assemble the full band of musicians for the Havana Cultura tour. This unit played stages across Europe, USA and closer to home in Latin America, and in turn this led to collaborations with The Roots and Mos Def.
