(U)nity is a musical project and collective ideal of five young musicians from different corners of the globe. Bringing the musical flavors of Paris, Havana, Minneapolis, Providence and NYC, this diverse group of musicians has created an unlikely collaboration. By fusing Afro Cuban music with modern jazz, soul, hip-hop and gospel, (U)nity has neither sacrificed virtuosity nor groove and has dazzled audiences world-wide.
Conceived in the summer of 2006 by Cuban pianist Axel Tosca Laugart and Cuban American Drummer Amaury Acosta, (U)nity expanded in 2008 to include French guitarist Michael Valeanu, bassist Chris Smith and alto saxophonist Max Cudworth. Their latest CD release, Peace.Love&Music, is (U)nity’s manifesto and initiative for reaching all those who dream of being enlightened, refreshed and inspired by music again.
