Founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Rafael Ferrer Noel (Cuba) and Rosina van der Aa (New Zealand), CUBANFUSION is Wellington's Cuban Salsa Specialist and New Zealand's leading Cuban dance and music company.

In addition to Salsa, CUBANFUSION teaches the range of Afro-Cuban dance styles from Rumba to Reggaetón, as well as Afro-Cuban Contemporary dance. 

Rafael also sings and plays percussion in a number of Wellington-based bands including his very own Afro-Cuban eight and five piece jazz bands MafereFUN Yemayá and AfroKan, as well the Cuban Duo Madera Fina and the Son de Cuba Quartet.
