Yuniel Jimenez "El Guajiro" (The Country Boy) is a singer-songwriter and a master tres player who came from Santa Clara, Cuba to New York City. He brought with him not only his tres-guitar but a piece of the country side of Cuba to the Big Apple. In 2012, he described his experiences in a single ¨Un Guajiro en Nueva York¨ which was also the tittle of his first album. The 12 track album depicts various life situations inside and outside of Cuba through the eyes of the Cuban singer-songwriter. In 2015, his second CD, called ¨Hay Gente Pa' To'....¨ was released. This is an album that has been enjoyed by a more diverse public. In 2017, ¨La Malicia¨ and ¨Hay Gente Pa´ To´ won the hearts of people of Medellin, Colombia and were voted #1 songs for six consecutive weeks in Latinastereo Radio Station. The genuine lyrics and unique sound of the Cuban Tres in that album will enchant any language speaker and certainly make a music listener dance!
