An ordained Yoruba priestess, singer Gladys "Bobi" Céspedes was born in Cuba, but has lived in the U.S. since emigrating in 1959. She currently lives in San Francisco where she co-founded the progressive Latin/Cuban group Conjunto Céspedes in 1981 with her nephew Guillermo Céspedes. With her band, Bobi has toured throughout the Midwest, and the Eastern part of the United States, as well as a tour of major jazz festivals throughout Western Canada, as well as the Monterrey World Music Festival, the Live Oak Music Festival in Santa Barbara.
Originally from Mexico City, DJ Antonio has called the Bay Area his home for over 25 years. It is here in the Bay Area that he discovered his love for Cuban music and more specifically, timba. He has dj'ed internationally, but has focused most of his time in spreading this amazing music through concerts, clubs & events here in the Bay Area for many years. Through his dedication of helping to bring this new sound, he has been fortunate to be able to dj alongside some of the greats of this genre like Elio Reve y su Charangon, Barbaro Fines y su Mayimbe, Charanga Habanera, Los 4, Gente de Zona and local favorites like Fito Reinoso & Conjunto Cespedes which Bobi Cespedes was a part of. Anyone that follows DJ Antonio's parties is because he always keeps the crowd moving and is always bringing the newest, hottest sounds from Cuba. This New Years Eve, you can expect that he will bring the latest from Cuba, but will make sure to mix it up with bachata, reggaeton, salsa, merengue & more!
