NG La Banda is a Cuban musical group founded by flutist José Luis "El Tosco" Cortés. NG stands for nueva generación ('next generation'). NG La Banda are the creators of timba (a term coined by Cortés), the most important popular dance and music genre of the past two decades. Prior to founding NG La Banda, Cortés played in the Afro-Cuban jazz-fusion supergroup Irakere, and the seminal songo band Los Van Van.

NG La Banda was one of the most important groups in Cuban music history, simultaneously representing a culmination of the best music of the 1980s and a series of bold innovations that helped to define the timba style of the 1990s and beyond. While Calixto was with Adalberto, José Luis El Tosco Cortés, the future leader of NG La Banda, was in Irakere, along with several other horn players, including José El Greco Crego from Calixto’s Acheré days, who would eventually play with NG La Banda. In 2005, he released Calixto’s Way, a high energy Latin Jazz album recorded in Europe. As of 2010, Calixto has several groups in Europe, including the timba band La Jugada and the Latin Jazz band Calixto Oviedo and the Latin Train.
