About Buene Fe
Formed in 1999 in the province of Guantánamo, have released five studio albums: Déjame entrar (2001); Arsenal (2003); Corazonero (2004); Presagios (2006); Catalejo (2008) and Pi es 3,14 (2010).

The trova influences are present in all their lyrics, which contain thoughts about the contemporary life, with contemporary sonority, allowing arrangements that makes each song fit in many Cuban genres, with influences from pop and rock. They make fusion music based in the trova style; and, while having pop tendencies, they use other styles and influences as well, which allows them to present more elaborate ideas.

They try to avoid categories; trying to make prevail the poetry and the venturous verse; trying to wrap it with pop rock sonorities, but with a direct link to what used to be the intelligent songs that was made from the 60s to the 80s in Cuba.

Israel Rojas: Director and lead singer
Yoel Martínez: Acoustic guitar and singer
Dairon Rodríguez: Electric guitar
Maikel Pérez: Batería
Ernesto Cisneros: Keyboard
