With exceptional warmth, powerful presence and unmistakable virtuosity that belies her young age, Daymé Arocena is a stunning jazz vocalist. Born and raised in Havana, her conservatory training is blended with Cuba’s cultural foundations. Her distinctive sound features Santeria chant, fluid jazz stylings and a nuanced Afro-Cuban soulfulness. With an unforgettable charisma you can feel, once you hear her voice, you won’t forget her name.
Sponsored in part by the Proviant Group:
This engagement of Daymé Arocena is made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
Please note - due to recent changes at the U.S. State Department to the processing of visas at the U.S. Consulate in Havana, we are rescheduling Daymé's November performance to May 4.
