The Feeling Messengers
Miguel "Miguelo" Valdes, Band Leader
Overview: Miguel "Miguelo" Valdes, the Afro-Cuban musician and band leader, has assembled a talented group of professional Latin artists, dedicated to preserving authentic Cuban music.
Our performances are jam-packed with rhythms that reflect the Boleros, Rumbas, Guarachas and Cuban music from the 1940s. The Feeling Messengers is noted throughout New York City and New Jersey for combining contemporary traditional jazz and bossanova that takes the audience into a feeling of nostalgia, love, longing and happiness all through their music.
The Feeling Messengers bridges generations and understanding of the important role music has played in breaking down barriers of misunderstanding. Through music we can touch the hearts, minds, bodies and soul through the heartbeat of good Cuban music.
Previously our name was The Feeling Collective Band, but now we changed it to: The Feeling Messengers, because that’s what we are: Messengers of Feeling.
