Omni-ZonaFranca is a multi-disciplinary collective of street-artists from Cuba. Their work is a unique blend of performance, music, poetry, spoken word, rap, visual art, graffiti, video, and public art. Together since 1997, they have produced several music/poetry CDs and videos, including the groundbreaking CD Alamar Express. They produce an annual music, art, theater and poetry festival called "Poesía Sin Fin" in Cuba. They have taken part in the Havana Biennial, and many international exhibitions and festivals throughout Cuba, the United States and Europe. The group has been the subject of three documentaries and the recipient of many residencies including: Art Residency at the A-I-R Laboratory Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw; Art Residency AS220/The MaMa Experimental Theater, Brown University; and the Art Residency at Glasshouse Gallery, Williamsburg, New York.
