(U)nity was conceived in the summer of 2006. By Cuban American Drummer Amaury Acosta & Cuban Pianist Axel Tosca Laugart. Their vision was to create a sound that has never been done before. Fusing Axel's Afro Cuban Culture with Amaury's New York's Culture Jazz, Hip Hop Etc.
"We wanted to make a sound that wasn't conventional or "gimmicky" a lot of people that are doing Latin jazz or Afro - Cuban jazz, we wanted to go in a different route we wanted to fuze the uncommon aspects of both cultures. I was always believed that Jazz , hip hop and Afro Cuban music were cousins and Africa was its grand father"
