Daymé Arocena

Line up: TBA

When you blend the forces of Erykah Badu, Gil Scott-Heron and Ella Fitzgerald together you will hear the highly talented Cuban singer Daymé Arocena. The young and talented singer, composer and choir conductor from Cuba mixes spiritual roots with neo-soul and jazz. She sings her songs in Spanish and occasionally in English. The international media describes her as the new voice of Cuba.

The British BBC radiojockey Gilles Peterson was blown away while listening to her powerful voice for the first time. He signed her almost immediately with Brownswood Recordings. For this label she recorded her debut album Nueva Era in 2015. Two years later she recorded Cubafonía. With this album she reintroduced the world to Cuban music. Arocena is a living exhibit showing that Cuban music is alive and kicking.

Daymé Arocena performed earlier in The Netherlands where she played in Paradiso and Motel Mozaïque in Rotterdam. For the first time in The Netherlands we give her and her band the main stage. Don’t miss out on this one!
