Daymé Arocena // Live Dates // Europe in November
October 29, 2015
The 22-year-old Cuban jazz and neo-soul devotee has announced a clutch of dates in Europe following a recent appearance in Japan as well as the Worldwide Festival magic moment of her off-the-cuff collaboration with Roy Ayers and Ed Motta. Discovered by Gilles Peterson on a visit to Cuba for the Havana Cultura platform, her debut album, ‘Nueva Era’, was released on Brownswood earlier this year and marked her out as an individual talent worth keeping an eye on.
Influences on her music range from the George Benson CDs in her father’s collection, the classical music education that she received along with the traditions of the Santeria religion that her all-white outfits identify her as a part of.
