Issac Delgado

Vocalist Issac Delgado, who performed timba music with his up to 14-piece orchestra, is considered one of the greatest Cuban singers. His contemporary sound is created out of the fusion of traditional influences and popular contemporary rhythms.

Born in Havana, in 1962, his interest in music began at age 18 when he joined a group that modernized old popular Cuban music. He launched his professional career in 1983 as a member of the Orquesta de Pacho Alonso, touring internationally and making his first recording. In 1988, he became the lead vocalist in the group NG La Banda, found great popularity and fame throughout the country, and recorded three more CDs.

Since then, he has also become popular around the world. His CD Versos en el Cielo features re-arrangements of Cuban classics from the Nueva Trova era.

In 2006 he defected to the United States of America from his native Cuba in an effort to boost his international career. He moved to Tampa (Florida) with his family. His Cuban orchestra stayed in Cuba, changed its name and added a new singer.

His first US release was En Primera Plana (2007)
