(U)nity is the musical project, and collective ideal of five musicians from different corners of the world. Bringing the musical flavors of Paris, Havana, Minneapolis  and NYC, musicians Michael Valeanu, Axel Tosca Laugart, Chris Smith, Max Cudworth & Amaury Acosta. They have created an unlikely collaboration in their mission of fusing Afro Cuban Music with modern jazz, soul, hip-hop and gospel. They’ve sacrificed neither virtuosity nor groove.

Conceived in the summer of 2006 by Cuban American Drummer Amaury Acosta & Cuban pianist Axel Tosca Laugart. (U)nity represented universal ideal for the two. They dreamt of breaking the stigmatized conceptual beliefs Cuban Culture has been confined by for years. Drinking Mojito's,Dancing salsa, and smoking cigars is part of cuba’s rich history although their is so much more. We strive to show there is a #newcuba.
