Singer and a Cuban music referent, Tomas Diaz is back with “Suky” a new song that contains all the elements to become an international success; a true hybrid and fusion of genres that represents and brings together the musical influences collected during his career.
Born in Matanzas, Cuba, Tomas Diaz grew upvery close to music. He was seduced at an early age by the sounds of Rock: Jimmy Hendrixâ€™ guitar, James Brown style and staging, Bob Marleyâ€™s charisma and his revolutionary and pacifist spirit, without forgetting the sounds of Cuba: Celia Cruz, the Orchestra Aragon and Pello El Afrokan, while flirting with Fela Kutiâ€™s African signature style.
His musical style moves through the rhythms of Cuba to calypso, influenced by the Caribbean sounds of Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica. Adding to his unique style are the amalgam of sounds and the cocktail of genres that Miami offers, where he has lived for over 30 years.
“Suky” has a life of its own: a contagious rhythm with amusing lyrics that invite you to dance. â€œSukyâ€ is already getting radio support on several stations in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. â€œSukyâ€ is also available on all digital platforms starting today, March 3rd.
Premiering today on VEVO, the video captures the essence of the song and presents an original choreography personified by a group of beautiful dancers and a series of recognizable music, television, film, and entertainment characters. These included the hip-hop legend, Flavor Flav; former Miss Universe, model and actress, Alicia Machado; iconic actor, Erik Estrada, Cuban musical star, Carlos Oliva; YouTube stars Pepe Billete and Peter Anguilla, as well as ESPN Sports analyst, Dan Lebatard to name just a few. Likewise, Tomasito, Libertad, Suky Pink, Suky Blue, Suky Violet and a large group of friends transport us to the magical land of “Suky” where everyone is welcome, and elation reigns.
Tomas Diaz has worked with an eclectic mix of genres and artistic greats the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Phish, Clarence Clemmons, Celia Cruz, Snoop Dogg, Chayanne and Ricky Martin, amongst others. He is part of Spam Allstars, a well-known group with which he has received a Latin GRAMMY Award nomination in 2003 for its album Fuacata Live!, and is a key member of one of the most respected groups in the city with five released albums and an average of 200 concerts a year.
