Daymé Arocena

  • Details
  • Internationally known as Cuba's finest young female vocalist and jazz improviser, Daymé Arocena "unites cosmopolitan musicianship with deep roots" (New York Times), blending Santerian chant, rhythmatic complexity, fluid jazz styling, and Afro-Cuban soulfulness. "Her voice pouring liquid over hectic conga beats before breaking out in soulful celebration of the storied perfect combination of Cuban music and jazz" -- Billboard

    Daymé Arocena will conduct a post-concert talk describing her experience coming out of the Cuban music conservatory system and some background on the musical traditions of the island.
