About 1000 Fuegos
1000 FUEGOS creates compositions that paint an afro-cuban face with a transplanted american smile that only finds home in a jaded heart. Their live shows are presentations of ancestral sounds entombed by the filter of today’s modern pop perspective. A proud representation of the concrete melting pot of cultures spanning from the US to the Caribbean, South and Central America- this music transcends our modern concept of diversity. Previously known as “Nuestro,” this group has recently gained considerable acclaim with this new wave of music after releasing their debut, self-titled EP as 1000 Fuegos. They’re currently performing in Oregon, South Florida and Hawaii with aspirations to tour through South America, all of the US and Europe.
Since the young age of 12, Adolfo Cuellar has been expressing his particular piece of urbanity by performing with bands that span genres as extreme as punk, hip hop and metal. After the last 4 years of recording and touring with NIAYH, a funk rock band out of Oregon, he is now focused on the consistent inspiration that he finds in his own familial and cultural roots. Being born and raised in such a diverse stew of ethnicity as Hialeah, FL, Adolfo has always appreciated the value of culture in life. His current and most gratifying project yet is tropical indie band, 1000 FUEGOS, named after his grandfather’s home-town in Cuba.
