Born and raised in Camaguey, Cuba, Yunesky’s passion for music and the arts was cultivated at a young age. An appreciation for music and dance was encouraged in his house while growing up, as his mother was a piano teacher and professional ballerina. Yunesky’s early training in the arts began at the Escuela Nacional de Artes y Danza where he initially spent four years studying ballet and folkloric dancing, followed by an additional three years studying percussion.
Yunesky’s love for music led him to pursue a career as a musician in Cuba. He played percussion in several national orchestas in Cuba including Maravilla de Florida, Achere and Carlos Joel y la Balanza. His talent as a musician enabled him to travel extensively throughout Cuba, where he played at various Carnivals / music festivals including Cuba’s infamous Carnival in Santiago de Cuba. He also made several television appearances playing music on Super 12 in Havana and Tele Camaguey.
In addition to playing percussion, he spent 10 years employed as an entertainer and Dj for numerous hotels throughout Varadero, Cuba. His charisma and ability to energize large crowds combined with his musicianship, has enabled him to develop a unique identity as a Dj. Yunesky believes that dj’ing is more than merely playing music; it is an ability to selectively deliver music appropriate for each crowd no matter how diverse, and instill an energy of excitement via mc’ing in rhythm with the music.
