A startlingly new voice, singer/composer Dayme Arocena is an inviting ambassador for Cuba’s contemporary music scene. Arocena and her trio deliver swirling Santerian chant, rhythmic complexity, fluid jazz styling, and sophisticated Afro-Cuban sound, channeling the island’s musical soul in joyous fashion.
“With her fresh take on cross-cultural fusion, this Cuban treasure is fast-tracking it onto the global stage in a show of soulful vigor and awe.” —NPR
Presented in conjunction with the Walker exhibition Adiós Utopia: Dreams and Deceptions in Cuban Art Since 1950 (on view November 11, 2017–March 18, 2018).
