Daymé Arocena @ Institute of Contemporary Arts

  • Institute of Contemporary Arts 25 Harbor Shore Drive Boston, MA United States

Raised in Havana, Daymé Arocena has quickly become the voice for a new generation of talented Cuban millennials that are reimagining their African roots through a lens that filters jazz, soul, and funk. Her powerful singing and buoyant music defy expectations, drawing on the rhythms of Afro-Cuban traditions, the nimble athleticism of jazz, and the catchy hooks of pop melodies. The Cuban songstress is an avid practitioner of Santería, an Afro-Caribbean religion based on Yoruba beliefs, and its chants and repertoires are just as important to her as jazz and Cuban neo-soul. She is touring in support of her new album Cubafonía.
