Daymé Arocena

With exceptional warmth and a powerful presence to augment her virtuosity, Daymé Arocena is one of the “most inviting ambassadors” for Cuba’s contemporary music. Santerian chant, rhythmic complexity, fluid jazz styling, and a nuanced Afro-Cuban soulfulness—she channels the elements in service to her audience and culture.

“Ms. Arocena unites cosmopolitan musicianship with deep roots”—New York Times.

“You may come for the jazz: clarinet and horns and swingy rhythms, plus Billie Holliday and Duke Ellington classics. But you’ll stay for all the other ingredients in their mélange: fiddles and guitars, bouncy banjo-ukes, weepy country pedal steel, rock-and-roll electric guitar, jug-band kazoo and assorted percussion” —Huffington Post.

Karrin Allyson Trio

“She aces the tightrope walk of songbook reverence and jazz-vocal breeziness that often proves elusive”—New York Times.
