Miami duo Afrobeta has been tearing up dance floors in their hometown since 2006. Formed by lyricist/vocalist Cuci Amador and synth-centric producer/arranger Smurphio, their mutual love of catchy songwriting, Cuban pastries, and dancing til’ 5 AM, is what initially inspired them to make music together.
They’ve toured internationally, performing at some of the largest music festivals and venues in the world including Glastonbury, Space Ibiza, Burning Man, Ultra Music Festival editions in Miami, South Korea and Brazil, Camp Bisco, and Identity Festival. Their fourth full-length album, the self-produced Illusion Motel, was released in fall 2020 on their imprint, Pubic Zirconia. The remix album featuring a full lineup of Miami producers was released in April 2021 entitled, Extended Stay: Illusion Motel Remixes.
The documentary Birthright, follows Afrobeta as they are invited to perform in Havana, Cuba. The duo’s desire to visit their parents’ homeland ignites a surreal journey into who they are, where they come from, and what being Cuban really means. Birthright recently premiered as the closing night film at the Miami International Film Festival.
