More Info
The 4th album on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label from Cuban vocalist Daymé Arocena is a return to her Havana roots. Backed once again by a killer band of fellow Cuban musicians, the singer, composer and songwriter has stripped everything back to the core.
A jazz-tipped record rooted in the rhythms of rumba, she draws on the island’s intertwined rituals of family, music

and religion. Ringing with echoes of the greats, songs nod to the likes of Tito Puente and La Lupe, inspirations which

carry the sound of Cuba’s sun-baked, vibrant daily existence.
