MORE INFO

From a country renowned for its musicians, Arocena has exploded on the scene as one of Cuba’s most dazzling. Backed by a sterling young Cuban trio, she reimagines the music of her Afro-Cuban roots suffused with jazz, soul and funk. A veteran performer although only in her mid-20s, her voice recalls Celia Cruz, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, and her unstoppable charisma—whether in Spanish, English, Yoruba or other languages—charms audiences worldwide.
