Daymé Arocena

Daymé Arocena image

Edinburgh debut for the sensational Cuban singer who has been making waves on the international scene. Signed to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings she has been described as a Celia Cruz/Aretha Franklin hybrid with a fearless vocal repertoire that encompasses scatting, Afro-Cuban chanting, scratchy-throated whispers, and a deep, gusty laugh. Singing to a ritualistic rumba beat, her voice pouring liquid over hectic conga beats before breaking out in soulful celebration of Cuban music and jazz. She exudes great presence and her live performances are phenomenal delivered with energy and raw passion.
