Burning up stages wherever she plays, Cuban singer and composer Daymé Arocena is taking the global music scene by storm. With a powerful voice and charismatic presence, she is “one of the most exciting artists to come along in years” (Songlines). Backed by a sterling trio of musicians, she roots her music in Cuba’s classic rhythms, mixing in Santeréan chant with a fluid jazz styling and nuanced soulfulness. NPR calls her an “artist for the ages” and named her debut album, Nueva Era, one of the year’s best.
