ARRABIO hail from Trinidad, Cuba, the jewel of the nation’s Caribbean coast. The band has distilled its unique sound, carving their own spot in the international hardcore community after years in isolation. Whereas it was once illegal in Cuba to play or listen to rock n roll, this 4-piece has been at the forefront of creating a DIY rock n roll revolution in Cuba, a country hungry for something new. The band includes members of the original punk rock bands that first formed in the centre of the country in the mid 90’s; including guitarist William Garcia, who is the co-founder of Solidarity Rock, an initiative which works to create cultural exchange with Cuban and foreign rock bands. Through Solidarity Rock, ARRABIO has toured Cuba four times with bands from across Western Canada and the United States.
